Migrant Tribunal on the GFMD


The International Migrants Alliance invites you to the Migrant Tribunal on the GFMD (Global Forum on Migration and Development).

The tribunal is a two-day political event that puts in trial the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) and its neoliberal globalization design on migration. This event will also highlight the resistance of grassroots migrants against such machinations.

The tribunal will hear testimonies from witnesses from migrant grassroots organizations which actively oppose the GFMD. These are organizations that organized the series of International Assembly of Migrants and Refugees (IAMR) in Manila (2008), Athens (2009) and Mexico City (2010). Presentations of the witnesses will be the position taken by each of the assembly held.

The judges shall be prominent individuals from international organizations concerned with migration and migrant workers. They will formulate the political judgment on the GFMD based on the presentations of the grassroots migrant workers.

It is going to happen on November 28-29, 2012 in the University of the Philippines in Quezon City, Philippines.

Karibu Seminar: Tourism and Globalization

Travel and Globalisation:  The Impact of Tourism on Global Peace and Justice

Globalization Conference / Norwegian Social Forum
Folkets Hus, Oslo, Norway

10:00 am - 11:30 am

The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), the tourism industry, and many governments claim that tourism is ‘a motor for development’; that it contributes to poverty alleviation and peacemaking in developing countries.  But how do the poor and marginalized really benefit?  And how can our choices reinforce the control of narratives and power norms on the ground, often exacerbating conflicts?  This seminar will explore these challenges of an expanding tourism industry, and how we, as tourists, impact global justice and peace worldwide.

Featuring:

Ranjan Solomon, former Executive Director of the Ecumenical Coalition On Tourism – Panelist

  Zoilamérica Narváez, Director of CEI- Centro de Estudios Internacionales (Center for International Studies) in Nicaragua – Panelist

  Eilert Rostrup, Director of Karibu Foundation, Norway – Panelist

  Linda Veråsdal, Director of Ethical Travel Portal, Norway - Panelist

  Tyler Dale Hauger – Information and Project Manager, Karibu Foundation, Norway – meeting leader
