  • About the GFMD

    Created in 2007, the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) is a state-led, informal and non-binding process, which helps shape the global debate on migration and development. It provides a flexible, multi-stakeholder space where governments can discuss the multi-dimensional aspects, opportunities and challenges related to migration, development, and the link between these two areas. The GFMD process allows governments - in partnership with civil society, the private sector, local and regional governments, youth, the UN system and other relevant stakeholders – to analyze and discuss sensitive issues, create consensus, pose innovative solutions, and share policy and practices.

    The dialogue focused on the following six thematic priorities with a cross-cutting approach:

    • The impact of climate change on human mobility
    • Rights and migration
    • Diasporas
    • Labour migration
    • Culture, narratives and migration
    • Multi-level governance of migration

  • Global Outlook on Public Narratives

    What do individuals across the world think about immigration, why do they think what they do, and what communication is likely to affect what they think? 

    The Global Outlook on Public Attitudes to Immigration provides data on public attitudes to immigration in different regions of the world and an overview of the rapidly developing scientific literature on attitudes to immigration. It also provides examples of communication that works and guidance on what types of communication are likely to be effective.
