  • Reply to: Global Compact on Migration   3 weeks 4 days ago

    We haven´t been able to integrate the people from Africa and the Middle East here in Finland. They will ruin our social security system. We don´t have jobs for them. Digitalisation and automatization will Still reduce jobs dramatically. And the crime rates.. We have research data here how people from certain cultures and continents make over ten times more sexual crimes than us native people! Finland has been a very Secure country. We don´t want buid fences around our houses like in many African countries the wealthier people have to do. Our children have been able to play free in our forests and we don´t want it will change. Our school system is already in difficulties when children from the developing countries are not able to follow the education well and some of them skrew around the classrooms. Our PISA-results have gone down. We don´t want more violence, insecurity and islam here! We Finnish have the right for our own land here!

    It would be useful to enter into contact with the UNDP, extending your tracking of the Global Compact implementation to align with monitoring of progress on the SDGs as the Goals address many of the key drivers & factors related to migration, and synergies might help reduce cost of monitoring. Placing it within the GFMD may help, I agree. It would also be ideal to give relevant civil society (beyond IGO-UN-Bretton Woods funded research institutions) a stake in oversight.

    This is exactly the reason why I am investing into both Ripple's XRP and Stellar's XLM

    These two companies have the potential to be the Microsoft and Apple of the new millennium.

    Helping everyone achieve a better cost of living and standard of care and access to commercial services and banking is a valuable and worthwhile pursuit.

    UBI or Universal Basic Income is another potential service that many millennial's support and will strongly vote in favor for in upcoming elections as our generation moves into the majority.

    Such training program funded by government agency is making way for the stake holders to fill in their pockets...surely it will lead to a huge scam. Any RA holding valid licence to recruit Indian nationals for work in overseas countries should, by default, provide due training as it is an integral part of their business. This being the case, one wonders as to why PDO by the ME A...on the contrary, ME A should ensure all RAs comply and able to demonstrate, evidencing such training to prospective candidates leaving for work in foreign countries.

    Absolutely! I am aware there are lots of odds against migrants; discriminatory huddles to overcome. It takes patients, determination, focus and off course government's support to settle. Historically, migration has been largely due to economic and political issues. Whilst we encourage host countries to show some level of warmth to migrants, to reduce migration requires encouraging economic and political stability in their countries of origin. Perhaps, solving migration problem illustrates the importance of breaking barriers opposing globalisation over protectionism in many countries today.
