While the international community is at work to develop a Global Compact for safe, orderly and regular migration, the international debate is getting more and more polarized between those who are open to welcome migrants and refugees and the ones who are afraid of new influxes and demand reinforced security measures.
Within this context, with the patronage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy, AVSI Foundation sponsored a side-event to share ideas and experiences, and to highlight best practices of partnership among different entities from civil society, the private sector, the government systems at the local and national level.
Invited by AVSI, the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Angelino Alfano with his colleagues from Tunisia, Uganda, Sudan, Niger and Kenya gathered around a table in New York to talk about best practices on development cooperation and the need for security alongside representatives of the private sector and civil society. The event took place on the occasion of the 72nd United Nations General Assembly, on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, at the UN Headquarters, in New York.
