Description: 

This publication contains the report and supplementary materials about the workshop on migration and families, which was held in Geneva, Switzerland, on 7 and 8 October 2014, within the framework of the International Dialogue on Migration (IDM). The workshop was the second in a series of two workshops organized in 2014 under the overarching theme, “Migration Human Mobility and Development: Emerging Trends and New Opportunities for Partnerships”. It focused on family migration and on the differential and challenging impact of migration on the family unit and its members, and offered policymakers and practitioners an opportunity to showcase and exchange policies, cooperation and partnership frameworks, and lessons learned. The workshop also discussed practical solutions at the regional, national and international levels to respond to the challenges that migrant families and their members are facing.
