The Forum declaration responds to three verbs: see, evaluate and act. To this end, all processes around the FSEM must involve, since their conception, spaces of sharing and construction between civil society and the most diverse social movements involved in the migration area, with a special attention to the voice of migrant people. Therefore, the methodology guarantees first and foremost the participation and leading role of migrants.
To achieve this, given the necessary limitations to control and prevent the Covid-19 world pandemic, the process was divided into three steps, being pre-forum, forum, and post-forum. All steps will be mediated by delegates nominated by representatives of the International Committee and led by migrants themselves, with the aim of encouraging deep reflection on the issues at stake, the challenges and problems faced and, above all, think collectively about possible convergences and alternatives.
A document will be produced after each event, based on the diagnosis, main ideas and denunciations to draw up recommendations. All documents will be compiled to constitute the Final Declaration, fruit of each of our commitments, written in co-construction, participation, and democratic process. The team responsible for the Final Declaration will gather the proposals resulting from the self-managed activities and prepare a proposal that will be discussed and forwarded for approval by the Assembly of Social Movements.
The pre-forum represents a time of convergence on thematic axes and related issues, seeking to delve deeper, debate and build collectively through the leadership of each country’s delegation and committees supporting the Forum’s building process.
The pre-forum activities are composed of 1 webinar per month, between November 2020 and February 2021, in order to address and debate each one of the themes composing the axes defined for the Forum.
The Forum will ensure a process to build a claim document, counting with the involvement of everyone. The FSEM will therefore be the result of a collective and participative building process.
This process will follow a calendar with self-organized activities by axis and assemblies.
