ACTFORM organized a consultation meeting on the 2nd and 3rd of October, 2009 to discuss the Migrant Rights Shadow Report and the upcoming Global Forum for Migration and Development (GFMD).

Some of the proposals made included a formalized/official method for the investment of migrant workers’ income, establishment of new frameworks to allow for Sri Lankan embassies to oversee and deal with employer malpractices abroad, improve government reintegration and counseling services available for returning migrants and raise more awareness of these services, etc.
