Follow up to Migration Forum

As one of the delegates from UN-based NGOs working on migration to the Global Forum on Migration and Development, Catherine participated in a panel sharing the highlights of the session. NGOs at the session spoke out strongly against the current practice of criminalizing migrants by putting them in detention for long periods of time and also the practice of circular migration which ties migrants to a single employer giving them no redress if that employer exploits them.  This practice also breaks up families and causes many problems both in countries of origin and countries of destination.
