Potential impact of changes in US immigration policies on poverty and food security in Central American countries

Forum on Migration, Trade & the Global Economy

In collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Fundación Foro del Sur (FFS) and with the support of the Dirección Nacional de Migraciones, the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) is launching the first Forum on Migration, Trade & the Global Economy on December 14, 2017.
The Forum aims to facilitate dialogue among policymakers, private sector actors, academia, civil society groups, and high-level representatives from governmental and intergovernmental organisations. This dialogue will provide a nonpartisan, evidence-driven platform to examine the linkages between migration and international trade, probe key challenges and explore new avenues for coordinated policy action at the national, regional and global level. Outside the negotiating context, the Forum will address the topic of migration from a trade perspective with the aim to increase an understanding of the key issues at stake and to provide inputs to envisage solutions.
