Please find below an announcement of and instructions for participation to
the online-discussion in the framework of the Global Forum on Migration and

Dear Madam/ Dear Sir,

We  would  like to invite you to participate in the online discussions that
we  are  organising  from May 14th onwards, in the framework of the 'Global
Forum on Migration and Development'.

The  Belgian government will host the first meeting of this Global Forum on
9,  10  and  11  July  2007.  The King Baudouin Foundation has accepted the
invitation  to  organise  the first day of this Global Forum meeting, which
will  be  devoted  to  discussions of non-state actors. This 'Civil Society
Day'  on  July  9th will gather a broad range of non-governmental actors to
discuss  the  migration  and  development  nexus  and  give  input  to  the
governmental discussions on the 10th and 11th of July.

The King Baudouin Foundation kindly invites civil society organisations and
other  non-state actors to participate in online discussions. Through these
discussions we aim to facilitate a vivid exchange of ideas and experiences,
including  from  organisations  that  cannot  be  present  at  the July 9th
conference.  The  online discussions serve to provide input into the agenda
setting  process  and  will  feed  directly  into  the debates of the Civil
Society Day.

We  urge  you  to  present  your ideas, recommendations and concerns during
these online debates, as thorough preparatory discussions will lead up to a
successful  Civil  Society  Day,  and  thus  form  a meaningful part of the
'Global Forum on Migration and Development'.

The  3-week  session will run in English, French and Spanish and is open to
participation  from non-state actors from around the world. The discussions
will start on Monday 14th May (9 am GMT) and close on Sunday 3rd June (5 pm

The discussions will evolve around the following three main themes;

   1. Human Capital Development and Labor Mobility: Maximising
      Opportunities and Minimising Risks
   2. Remittances and other Diaspora Resources: Increasing their Net Volume
      and Development Value
   3. Enhancing Institutional and Policy Coherence and Promoting

The discussions will run concurrently live throughout the 3-week period and
are being facilitated by a team from December 18, in close co-operation
with the King Baudouin Foundation.

At our website  you will find the information
you need to register for the discussions. The debates will start on 14 May,
but registration is open as of today.

Looking forward to your contribution to the online discussions,

Kind Regards,
The King Baudouin Foundation Team
