FORUM 2007 - Thematic

The 2007 Forum entitled “African Women for Africa’s Development: Building Partnership with the Diaspora” featured a dialogue between the African women on one side and the African Diaspora and the African descendants on the other side. Participants were gathered to discuss the issues of Women and Migration from its socio-economic and political perspectives as well as identifying the positive contributions of the Diaspora to Africa’s development.
Topics included:

    Roles and responsibilities at policy level
    Providing solutions and recommendations to African and Western Governments on Migration 
    Building bridges between the continents: opportunities, good practices and responsibilities

The Forum provided the opportunity to share good practices and experiences through luncheon speakers and dinner discussions that included:
    Highlighting
    Liberia and Senegal through presentations of respective case studies: the Sirleaf Market Women’s Fund of Liberia
    and the Association Education-Santé (AES) of Senegal
    UBS Philanthropy Services of Switzerland presenting the case studies of Senegal and Rwanda to highlight
