Connecting civil society worldwide
to promote policies for the well-being and protection of all migrants and communities

MADE publishes Independent Report
on Civil Society progress in Migration and Development

MOVEMENT. A Global Civil Society Report on Progress and Impact for Migrants’ Rights and Development. 1st edition
In October 2013 civil society leaders, network and organisations from around the world pro­posed to governments in the United Nations General Assembly to work together on an agenda for change around migration and development. This agenda, global civil society’s ‘5-year 8-point Plan of Action’, proposed to collaborate around eight priorities, centred on decent work and reforming migrant labour recruitment; human development and diaspora action; protection of migrants - men, women and children - on the move, in transit and at borders; and the rule of law, governance and international responsibility.
The civil society Migration and Development (MADE) network commissioned this first edition of a "Movement" report as an independent assessment of what progress has been made on achieving each of the eight goals in that 5-year 8-point Plan of Action in the two years since 2013. Based on interviews, literature review and a global survey among over 300 civil society organisations the report paints a picture both of improvement and inertia, of action taken by civil society and of action needed to be taken for the Plan to move forward, including key recommendations to civil society and governments.

The coordination of 
GFMD civil society activities has become part of the Migration and Development Civil Society Network (MADE) activities. MADE is both an open space and an expanding movement of civil society organizations and networks that connect: for international, regional and national change with and for migrants and migration.
Participation in MADE is open to all who share its mission. It includes channels to exchange information, mobilise advocacy and policy-building strategies, as well as participate in a range of regional, thematic and international meetings and actions. MADE activities are currently coordinated by seven civil society organizations and networks in Asia (Migrant Forum in Asia), Africa (Caritas Senegal), the Americas (Fundación Scalabrini with assistance from the Scalabrini International Migration Network and International Network for Migration and Development) and Europe (AFFORD UK, Cordaid and ICMC Europe).

The International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC) acts as the global Coordinating Office for MADE and the GFMD Civil Society Days. Find out more on the MADE network website.
