EUNOMAD is a space for the exchange of co-development practices promoting migrants as citizens and actors of development here and there.
This is an initiative of eleven organisations from nine countries of the European Union to consult each other on the relationship between migrations and development in order to address the lack of visibility and recognition of co-development activities, both in the North in European countries and in the South in countries of origin.
The network brings together today around one hundred stakeholders in 10 European countries from the civil society, local authorities and research institutes, working in the field of migrations, development and integration: migrant associations, non-governmental organisations, local authorities, research institutes, national groups and stakeholder networks.
Areas of activity
As a public arena for multi-actors dialogue, Eunomad reflects the multiplicity of practices linking migration, development, integration/citizenship and promotes them through a work of analysis, capitalization and advocacy at national and European levels.
The network’s activities are organised into four areas:
- The development of a multi-actor arena for consultation in Europe by structuring country platforms and fostering synergies between the different stakeholders.
- The capitalisation of practices, that is to say, the creation of a common framework for exchanging experiences, in the form of meetings and workshops. It allows network members to collectively evaluate their practices in the fields of migration-development-integration/citizenship and stimulates capacity building.
- Studies, by putting into perspective a state of art of the migration-development and integration/citizenship nexus and an analysis of policies and public debates on these subjects with the production of reports in each member country and in Europe.
Advocacy, by formulating recommendations for policy makers in countries and at the European level, so that public policies effectively support migrants as development actors.
