Global Network for Migration and Development: MADE

MADE: connect migrants with global civil society to change policies for the wellbeing of all migrants and communities.


The MADE programme is a collaboration of a number of civil society within the framework of the Global Forum on Migration and Development. We work for the rights of migrants are included in national, regional plans, and global sustainable development, especially in the context of the post 2015 agenda for sustainable development.

Objective: a stronger civil society

MADE aims to strengthen and enhance the capacity of organizations and networks of civil society working in the area of ​​migration and development to improve coordination, exchange and analysis of proposals and supporting any joint lobbying and advocacy activities.

Specifically, MADE aims to support the 5-Year 8-Point Action Plan presented to governments by civil society during the Second High-Level Dialogue on Migration and Development held by the UN during October 2013.

Global and Regional Structure

To meet these objectives, MADE revolves around global working groups and regional networks, each run by a different organization of civil society, who support each other in their work.

• 3 working groups will address global issues, specifically on global governance of migration, the role of the diaspora for sustainable development, and the rights of migrant workers.

• 4 Geographical Networks: Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and a Europe chapter,fake rolex will focus on the dynamics and problems of each region.

• 1 Global Coordination Office in Brussels, Belgium, which coordinates the program globally.

The program is co-funded by the European Union for an initial period of 3 years.

MADE Americas

In Latin America and the Caribbean, the International Network on Migration and Development (INDM) and the Scalabrini International Migration Network with the collaboration of the Scalabrini Foundation, direct the activities acting in concert and complementary.

Planned activities in Latin America and the Caribbean include:

  • Regional and sub-regional meetings of civil society throughout 2014 and 2015.
  • Preparation of various reports and documents as well as technical support for advocacy and lobbying, specific to the region of Latin America.
  • Mapping of CSOs in the region active in immigration issues and his experience in the region
  • Implementation by Network Scalabrini a small fund to finance up to five CSOs in the region in collaboration with government programmes.
