Internationella invandrardagen

December 18th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Den 18 december är internationella invandrardagen.
FN:s konvention om invandrarnas rättigheter har inte ratificerats ännu av Sverige eller annat EU-land.
Immigranternas Riksförbund arbetar för att konventionen ska börja gälla i Sverige.
Lördagen den 17 december anordnas en fest i Tensta Träff till firandet av dagen, samtidigt som föreningen Doyel firar Bangladesh Victory day.

On the occasion of the International Migrants Day, we hope that this celebration will be a chance to steer away the debate on undocumented migrants from securitisation discourses and recall the attention to the duty of national and international institutions to protect their human rights. We invite you to read a message from December 18, where you will also find a link to an interview with the new UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, François Crépeau.

At the beginning of this month, participants in the Civil Society Days of the Global Forum on Migration and Development focused on concerns regarding irregular migration, family unity and labour mobility and emphasized that “media play an important role in framing public opinion on migration issues”.

Similarly, the IOM states in its 2011 World Migration Report that “migrants’ voices must be heard in today’s all too often biased, polarized and negative debate on migration.”

This is exactly what Radio1812 http://www.radio1812.net/ has done since its launch back in 2006. For the sixth year in a row, radio stations from around the world will participate in the only global radio event on the occasion of International Migrants’ Day.

Close to 100 radio stations
http://www.radio1812.net/participants-participantes from 36 countries http://www.radio1812.net/2011-countries-pays-paises confirmed their participation and will broadcast special feature stories on a wide range of issues. From the concerns about the situation migrants and their families often find themselves in, to the positive examples of the successful contributions of migrants to sending as well as receiving countries.

In an interview with Radio1812
http://www.radio1812.net/article/interview-un-special-rapporteur-human-rights-migrants, the new UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, François Crépeau, says that empowerment of migrants and the development of a credible alternative are crucial to push back xenophobic discourse.

Together with journalists as well as civil society organizations from across the world the team behind Radio1812 is working hard to make this 6th edition a success and a building block for our continued efforts to raise awareness about migrants rights.
