This month, I am posting another example of MFA’s work- a statement on a workshop being held on May 3-4 in Kathmandu on SAARC cooperation on migration.
In the context of the upcoming election in the Philippines and her work on the “Never Again; Never Forget” campaign, I interview Maria Lorena “Tatcee” Macabuag, a longtime human rights (particularly migrant rights) activist.
This month I interview Rafeek Ravuther, producer of Pravasalokam, an Indian television program on missing migrants in the Gulf.
My January podcast is a personal monologue reflecting on transience and its enjoyments.
For my December blog post, I am sharing an example of the work I have been engaged with at MFA. I have attached an organizational statement that I wrote for International Migrants Day (18 December). It was a particularly important day this year, as it marked the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of all Migrant Workers and their Members of their Families, which was adopted in 1990 (and which, incidentally, Canada has not signed or ratified).
In my first podcast, I interview Harshada Deshpande, a fascinating young law school graduate, on her work in Nepal, her love of literature, and the need for lawyers engaging in human rights work.
