MADE expands opportunities for civil society practitioners and migrant advocates around the world to come together, exchange information, advocate and share policy-building strategies.
MADE activities seek changes in policies and practices to protect migrants and families and improve the conditions under which they live, move and work.
Taking as its starting point the 2013 Civil Society's 5-year 8-point Plan of Action, MADE activities are organized at regional, thematic and global levels.
Each of MADE's regional networks and Working Groups is led by a leading civil society organization or network with a history of advocating for migrants, development and migrants' rights, connecting with other civil society organizations and networks, and collaborating with governments and intergovernmental organisations at national, regional and global levels.
