The United Nations International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (UN-INSTRAW) is hosting the Virtual Discussion "Creating Gender Sensitive Migration Policy: Best Practices and Lessons Learned" from November 3 to November 21, 2008 and it is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate.
The discussion will bring together policy makers, government officials, financial experts, academics, and representatives from international organizations and NGOs to discuss how migration policy can promote development and the advancement of women. Specifically we will be looking at gender sensitive banking and co-development policies. The discussion aims to compile best practices and lessons learned for migration and development policy, with an emphasis on gender sensitive policies and to establish a virtual community for ongoing discussion and the sharing of resources.
For more information please see the Concept Note available online at http://www.un-instraw.org/images/files/ConceptNote.pdf. The Virtual Discussion will be held in English, conducted via email and moderated by UN-INSTRAW.

I look forward to a dynamic and constructive discussion.
