CIM-Forum 2019: Migration for Development - Digitalization and Diaspora

At this year's CIM-Forum, organized on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and organized by the Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM), we would like to give representatives of diaspora organizations and other committed members of the diaspora the opportunity to learn together, exchange ideas and network. Together we will discuss the opportunities and challenges of digitalization. We would also like to learn what potential it offers in the field of project work in our partner countries. On the other hand, we want to learn how digital tools can be used and applied meaningfully in the everyday life of committed organizations. In doing so, we rely on participatory formats and impulses from diaspora experts.
