” Migration is inevitable, necessary and desirable.“ With this message, IOM aims to introduce migration management to the Dutch general public by organizing the exhibition “Behind the scenes of migration management – the work of the International Organization for Migration in image” in the city of Zwolle from 2 to 20 August.
Migration is a much discussed topic in the political and public debate. With this exhibition IOM highlights migration management from different sides by sharing personal stories of migrants and IOM staff. Some migrants arrived in the Netherlands many years ago and want to use their expertise for capacity building in their homeland, some have just arrived in the Netherlands, others have left the Netherlands to rebuild their lives elsewhere.
“Migration is not a problem that needs to be solved; it is a reality that needs to be managed,” says IOM Director General William Lacy Swing.
With the exhibition IOM hopes to contribute to a fairer dialogue about migration and the people involved.
You can visit the exhibition “Behind the scenes of migration management” at the Stadkamer Zwolle from 2 to 20 August 2018: Zeven Alleetjes 1a, 8011 CV, Zwolle.
On 7, 8, 14 and 15 August visitors can meet an IOM employee who will give more information about this exhibition. The exhibition will also be shown at other locations in the Netherlands in the coming months.
