IID migration unit promotes better policy and practice in national and transnational migration governance by conducting rigorous research, promoting informed debate and creating platforms for policy engagement. Through innovative awareness campaigns and research communications, we also facilitates informed decisions on migration by individuals and institutions since December 2011. We were recently awarded the best stall awarded at the Migrant Fair on International Migrants Day 2019, jointly with BNSK. Among our recent work, we hosted the discussion session focusing pre-JTC (Joint Technical Committee) meeting between Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia to discuss gendered-mobility and rights of women migrants. We also co-hosted the tripartite (government, civil society and UN bodies) pre-GFMD national consultation to make the global commitments on migration locally contextualized and gender-responsive.
