The International Organization for Migration (IOM) invites you to participate in the hybrid meeting “Multistakeholder consultation on the creation of the future Global Diaspora Policy Alliance”, which will take place on May 17, 2023, at the Centre International de Conférences, (CICG) Geneva, Switzerland and virtually from 10:30 to 13:30 hours CET.

In 2022, IOM as the lead international agency working on issues related to human mobility and as Coordinator of the UN Network on Migration (UNMN), co-hosted the first Global Diaspora Summit (GDS), in partnership with the Government of Ireland and other lead participating states.

The outcome of the successful GDS is The Dublin Declaration, a plan of action for diaspora to institutionalize and operationalize diaspora capitals across policies, programmes, and partnerships in a coherent and consistent framework. It outlines a concise and visionary plan of action to support strategic engagement of diaspora organizations.

During the GDS a commitment was made and was a recommendation of the Dublin Declaration to create a Global Diaspora Policy Alliance, as a means of cultivating an inclusive ecosystem of collaboration across governments and key stakeholders to empower diasporas to be able to fully contribute to sustainable development. In this regard, IOM and partners are pleased to facilitate this multistakeholder consultation to discuss the establishment of this Global Diaspora Policy Alliance (GDPA). The purpose of the future GDPA will be to create a networked tool of expertise and exchange to complement existing facilities prioritizing diaspora engagement in global development policy frameworks and will serve to bring a broad array of partners together to accelerate implementation of the SDGs.

The aim of this multistakeholder technical consultation is to

  1. reaffirm the commitment made in Dublin towards the creation of a GDPA and invite partners to become signatories,
  2. to reflect upon progress made since the Global Diaspora Summit held in Dublin in April 2022, and to;
  3. discuss the establishment of this Global Diaspora Policy Alliance (GDPA), including working modalities, scope, content and potential partnerships. The expected outcome of this meeting will be a series of recommendations on how to constitute the GDPA which will result in its future creation and launch in 2023.

Interpretation of this event will be available in Spanish and French.
