The International Assembly for Migrants and Refugees 4 will be held in New York City from October 2-4, 2013. Unlike the previous IAMRs which were focused on the GFMD, a non-binding forum of the UN, IAMR4’s focus is on the UN High Level Dialogue (UN HLD), a UN process directed towards binding agreements and policies on migration and development issues. The UN HLD will talk about and plan the lives and future of migrants and refugees but without their representation. It is not a democratic process.
Thus, IAMR4 will represent the voice of migrants and refugees calling on the United Nations to listen to what the majority of migrants and refugees around the world say about their own issues and not the tiny minority who are positioning to speak on behalf of them. IAMR4 is coordinated by members of the International Migrants Alliance (IMA).
