Knowledge exchange

The exchange of knowledge between the M4D Net Members and other individuals and organisations that have a stake in migration and development related matters lies at the core of the M4D Net Platform. 


Migration flows impact on development in various and complex ways. Thematic e-Discussions seek to explore specific but often inter-related issues by drawing on the contributions from practitioners and experts. The responses from members are collected and summarized into a consolidated reply for internal and external audiences that have a stake in making migration work for development. 

Live Chats

A panel of experts engage in real-time debates with the M4D members and the wider public. The topics covered are subject to the larger migration and development agenda and the results of a Live Chat feed into policy-making, training material, and larger debates at key migration and development events.
