Dear FSN Forum members,

Hand-in-hand with the 2018 edition of the State of Food and Agriculture (SOFA), FAO headquarters in Rome will be hosting a technical workshop on the 1st of December 2017 on:

The drivers and impacts of migration and labor mobility in origins and destinations: Building the evidence base for policies that promote safe, orderly and regular people’s and labor mobility for poverty reduction and sustainable development

The workshop will bring together researchers and policymakers from around the world to discuss and understand the diverse patterns, drivers and impacts of migration and labor mobility as well as to enhance the dialogue to promote rural-urban linkages for achieving sustainable livelihoods transformation, food security and nutrition and poverty reduction.

In the context of the program, FAO invites the submission of papers to be presented at the workshop. You are welcome to send your extended abstracts explaining the core question(s), data and methods used, and (anticipated) findings, or complete papers, to [email protected] by 29 September 2017.
