    The Migration and International Mobility Space will be a place of exchange, of reflection, of mobilization and of concrete action. It will be comprised of an ensemble of workshops, conferences, presentations, projects and initiatives of all kinds (awareness building, artistic, or other); and everything will revolve around the theme of migration and international mobility. The different activities or initiatives, as well as their specific
    content, will be decided, developed and managed entirely by the participants of the Space. They will, therefore, be reflective of their subjects of interest, their preoccupations,
    their perspectives and their expertise.

    Cet Espace, déployé dans le cadre du FSM 2016, est un lieu d’échange, de réflexion, de mobilisation et d’actions concrètes sur la question migratoire. Il sera constitué d’un ensemble d’ateliers, de conférences, de présentations, et de projets et initiatives de
    tous types (de conscientisation, de l’ordre artistique ou autre), le tout autour du thème de la migration et la mobilité internationale. Les différentes activités ou initiatives elles-mêmes, ainsi que tout leur contenu, seront décidées, développées et gérées entièrement par les participantEs. Ils reflèteront alors les sujets d’intérêt, les préoccupations, les perspectives et les expertises particulières des différents participantEs.

    Inter Pares – qui signifie entre égaux – croit en la solidarité plutôt que la charité en matière de coopération internationale. Depuis 40 ans, nous travaillons en étroite collaboration avec de courageux activistes et plus d’une centaine d’organisations inspirantes partout dans le monde afin de bâtir la paix, promouvoir la justice et mondialiser l’égalité.

    Nos programmes sont largement axés sur six enjeux mondiaux : souveraineté alimentaire, égalité des femmes, paix et démocratie, justice économique, santé et migration.

    Nous travaillons avec des homologues à long terme – activistes et organisations au palier local et national – en Asie, en Afrique, en Amérique latine et au Canada.

    Au Canada et ailleurs dans le monde, nous nous efforçons d’autonomiser les gens afin qu’ils puissent être au cœur de leur propre développement et s’affirmer. En appuyant le travail de nos homologues, nous aidons des collectivités à combattre l’injustice, appliquer des solutions adaptées au milieu, lancer des projets novateurs et occuper l’espace politique qui leur revient.

    Nous nous engageons aussi à mobiliser la population canadienne autour des luttes pour la justice et l’égalité partout dans le monde et à offrir des moyens de passer à l’action.

    Inter Pares – which means among equals – believes in solidarity, not charity, as an approach to international cooperation. For 40 years, we have worked closely with courageous activists and more than a hundred inspiring organizations throughout the world to build peace, advance justice and globalize equality.

    Our programs largely focus on six global issues: food sovereignty, women’s equality, peace and democracy, economic justice, health, and migration.

    We work with long-term counterparts – local and national activist organizations – in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Canada.

    We are dedicated to empowering people in Canada and around the world to be at the center of their own development and to assert their own agency. By supporting the work of our counterparts, we help communities confront injustice, implement locally adapted solutions, spark innovative initiatives and occupy the political space that belongs to them.

    We are also committed to engaging Canadians in the struggles for justice and equality that people face around the world, and to offer ways to take action.

    The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is the oldest political foundation in Germany with a rich tradition in social democracy dating back to its foundation in1925. The foundation owes its formation and its mission to the political legacy of its namesake Friedrich Ebert, the first democratically elected German President.
    The work of our political foundation focuses on the core ideas and values of social democracy – freedom, justice and solidarity. This connects us to social democracy and free trade unions. As a non-profit institution, we organise our work autonomously and independently.

    Our goals:
    We promote
    – a free society, based on the values of solidarity, which offers all its citizens the same opportunities to participate on political, economic, social and cultural levels, regardless of their origin, sex or religion
    – a lively and strong democracy; sustainable economic growth with decent work for all
    – a welfare state that provides more education and improved healthcare, but at the same time combats poverty and provides protection against the challenges that life throws at citizens
    – a country that is responsible for peace and social progress in Europe and in the world.
