Knowledge Sharing

PMRN organizes fora, conferences, and roundtable discussions that tackle and bring to fore relevant issues in local and international migration. In 2019, it launched the Migration Dialogues, an annual forum that brings together scholars and stakeholders from the academe, government, civil society, the migrant sector, and other relevant sectors produce lively discussions that can lead to a better understanding of and informed decision-making on migration-related issues and challenges. In 2020, Migration Dialogues turned digital, reaching even more stakeholders worldwide through a series of webinars. PMRN’s most recent Migration Dialogues delved on the following:

Special Projects

Aside from the Migration Dialogues, PMRN also engages in commissioned projects that benefit the community of Filipino migrants worldwide. In 2014-2016, PMRN implemented the Capacity-building on Crisis Management and Assistance to Migrant Nationals: The Philippines (CMAN) Project funded by the International Organization for Migration. The project entailed the preparation of a national operations manual and the conversion of the manual into an interactive learning tool that will strengthen the Philippine government’s capacity to respond to emergencies and crisis situations affecting Filipinos abroad.
