In the framework of its “Voices of Migrants” project, the Cross-cutting Theme on Public Perceptions and Communications of the Global Knowledge Partnership on Migration and Development (KNOMAD) is looking for a short-term consultant (team) to conduct a literature review.
Migration is an important topic for national policy-makers and the media and it ranks high on the international agenda. In this debate, voices of migrants themselves remain mostly unheard and public perceptions and policy making are often based on fear and common myths rather than reality. Against this background, “Voices of Migrants” has the following objectives:
- give migrants a voice to share their experiences and priorities, their vision of development and the future as well as their recommendations to improve policy
- challenge public perception on migration: narrow the gap between perception and reality with regards to the fear of being flooded by migrants; show diversity of migration and fight against clichés
- inform policy-making as well as the work of NGO’s and migrant associations on national and international level
