Dr. Alfredo J. Ganapin Forum II, Year 4 %22DemocratizationThrough Migration%22

On 29 July 2008, the Center for Migrant Advocacy (CMA) and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Foundation (FES), in cooperation with the Arnold Bergstraesser Institute for Socio-Cultural Research in Germany (ABI), organized the 2nd Dr. Alfredo J. Ganapin Advocacy Forum Series in Balay Kalinaw, University of the Philippines-Diliman, Quezon City. The forum is a joint effort by the CMA and FES in further generating discourse on migration-related issues in the Philippines.

This forum featured the initial findings of the study “Democratization through Migration?” undertaken by Dr. Christl Kessler and Mr. Stefan Rother for the Arnold Bergstraesser Institute for Socio-Cultural Research in Germany. The main intent of presenting the researchers’ primary results was to obtain inputs from a Filipino audience with vast experiences and knowledge in the intersecting issues of migration, economics and politics. All comments and suggestions will be factored in for an enhanced analysis and a more substantiated set of results for the study.
