For all of you who have been wondering what goes on during the government component of the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD): Todays closing session will actually be streamed live. Do not expect major revelations or royal attendance as during the opening (see Picture) , but it should be interesting nonetheless since it includes reports of the three Roundtables and the Special sessions as well as an Outlook beyond Sweden. Information I am hoping for includes the Dates for the Turkey Meeting (presumably late 2015) and maybe even information of the 2016 Chair. The latest rumour I heard of claims that the chair will be Bangladesh. No guarantee, ,though!
It is not completely unlikely that the Chair will be announced today since the GFMD Troika consists of the past, present and future chairs of the Meeting and Sweden will Hand over to Turkey.
I am attending the closing session so I will Report any News immediately – or see for yourself at this link:
