Feedback from Participants
“The P2P was a key experience for me personally and for our office because it opened door for me to meet different stakeholders especially with International level organizations such as GIZ, GAMD and ATIKHA that focused on migration and development issues. I learned a lot from their experiences especially in setting up one-stop migration resource center and engaging other stakeholders which I want to replicate in West Java. Since the P2P, we had a lot of opportunities to participate in several migration and development program which are very helpful and useful for us in providing guidance in setting up the Jabar (West Java) Migrant Service Centre (JMSC)”.

“I thought I knew a lot about migration. I realized I still have a lot to learn. I have never participated in such a training and I think it is a very interesting program where I gained a lot of knowledge about migration management. ”

“I have found P2P as learning platform on migration governance. I have learnt best global practices, programs and initiatives taken by different governments in order to ensure safe, regular and orderly migration. I have also learnt different policy strategies to address and reduce vulnerability of migration, create reciprocal contribution of migrants and diaspora on sustainable development as well as to increase cooperation in facilitation of safe and dignified integration of migrants. Additionally, P2P granted me an opportunity to develop skills in dialogue and engagement of diaspora in the development of their families and communities. Indeed, P2P was very useful to share own practices and to know how others are doing work on migration governance in line with Global Compact on Migration (GCM). The methodology adopted in P2P was very interactive and highly participative that encouraged every participant to involve, to contribute, and to learn. I highly appreciate Global Academy on Migration (GAMD) for organizing such event”.
