International Assembly of Migrants & Refugees (IAMR 4), October 2-4, 2013, New York City

Since 2008, the IAMR has gathered grassroots migrant organizations from around the world who seek to expose the bankruptcy of the United Nations’ line of “managing migration” as a “tool for development”. IAMR has been held in opposition to past gatherings of the Global Forum for Migration and Development (GFMD), which was formed by the UN High-Level Dialogue on Migration and Development in 2006.
