Local Authorities in the Spotlight

The series ‘Local authorities in the Spotlight’ seeks to increase the visibility of innovative practices implemented at the local level in the field of migration and development. It puts local actors at the center stage and provides them with a space to express their views and share their experiences with the M4D Net Community of Practice.

This section will regularly introduce the M4D Net Community of Practice to different local M&D practices and aims to familiarise members and the wider public with the different themes linked to migrations which are addressed by local authorities in various regions. The featured examples aim to encourage other practitioners and policy-makers to promote the inclusion of migration into local development planning.
