Migration wird am Besten global verhandelt – deshalb ist dieses Blog in der Regel auf Englisch gehalten. Da die Debatte zum Migrationspakt aber mittlerweile auch in Deutschland an Fahrt aufgenommen hat, stelle ich in diesem Blogpost eine Auswahl meiner Beiträge auf Deutsch zusammen (wird fortlaufend aktualisiert).
Egal wie man zum Migrationspakt steht, sollte die Diskussion evidenzbasiert erfolgen. Nachdem das Thema in Deutschland lange ignoriert wurde, stellen viele Medien mittlerweile auch Hintergrundinformationen zur Verfügung (Auch wenn so ziemliche sämtliche Beiträge zum Migrationspakt mit Aufnahmen von Geflüchteten illustriert werden – warum nicht einmal eine philippinische Krankenpflegerin in Deutschland oder – ja, auch die gibt es – ArbeitsmigrantInnen mit heller Hautfarbe, z.B. aus Deutschland?).

(s)A full calendar is awaiting everybody that will come to Marrakech for the migration week(s) starting on December 1 and ending December 11. I have compiled an updated list of the major invents which you can find below. Besides the participation of the “usual suspects”, for this year I expect a much higher public/media interest than during previous gatherings such as the GFMD.

Events and dates for the “migration week(s)” in Marrakech – #GFMD application has started #ForMigration
In December, the “migration week(s)” will bring U.N. member states, international organizations, migrant civil society and other stakeholders to Marrakech, Morocco.

But migrant civil society organisations will also organize their own parallel and counter-events. Once more, I have compiled an outlook to central events on migration governance from above as well as from below. Continue reading
Global Compact #ForMigration has been agreed upon – but questions regarding the modalities of adoption remain
On July 13th, the Global Compact #ForMigration has been agreed upon – but that much-lauded event by no means constitutes the end of the process. The formal adoption will take place in the “Migration Week” in Marrakech. At the center of this week (actually closer to two weeks) will be the Intergovernmental Conference to Adopt the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) to be held on 10-11 December (plus the 11th Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) taking place the week before). There has been some uncertainty regarding the exact modalities of the GCM-conference – and while the U.N. modalities resolution might bring some clarity, it also raises further questions: Continue reading
