On Thursday 31st of January we will be part of the panel for an online discussion organised by the Guardian. The debate will address the question of how migration should feature in development policies and programmes. You can ask the panel questions and join the debate here at 1pm (GMT).

“On Thursday 31 January, we will bring together a panel from across the development landscape to answer the following questions: how well has the development community responded to the need to factor in migration? How can current achievements be enhanced and what lessons can be learnt from both the successes and failures to date? In addition, how should migration feature in post-2015 development goals?”

Other panelists include:

  • Dr. Blessing Mberu, research scientist, African Population and Health Research Center, Nairobi, Kenya
  • Bart W. Édes, director, poverty reduction, gender, and social development division, Asian Development Bank, Manila, Philippines
  • Pablo Escribano, communications assistant, ACP Observatory on Migration, Brussels, Belgium
