Is your city or region taking action to tackle discrimination, or does your city or region have specific expertise with regards to involving migrants and refugees in your local policy planning, implementation and review? Would you like to exchange with other cities to identify opportunities for further action, discuss challenges, and share lessons learned?
Or, is your city or region thinking of setting this up locally, but are you lacking information on what works and what doesn’t?
Join the upcoming online peer learning organized by UCLG as part of the Call to Local Action for Migrants and Refugees, where cities, regions, and partners will discuss what it takes to create welcoming environments that uphold human rights and enhance social cohesion and economic vitality.
This peer learning event will build on the discussions taking place at the 22nd IOPD Conference “Participatory Democracy for Diverse, Inclusive and Transparent Cities” (6-8 November) in Rio de Janeiro and at the Brazilian National Network of Welcoming Cities (Rede Nacional de Cidades Acolhedoras) event “Building territories of citizenship” (9-10 November) in Brasilia.
The learning outputs will also feed into the messages that our constituency will bring to the Global Refugee Forum (GRF) from 13-15 December 2023 and the Global Refugee Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) from 23-25 January 2024.
Please register here for the Peer Learning sessions by 10 November.
If your city would like to share and discuss a local practice as part of the event, please also fill out this form and our team will reach out with further guidance for preparing your presentation.
