Migration is one of the most important political, economic, and social issues on today´s global agenda. Although it tends to be seen as a problem, the historical truth (and here I recommend reading the World Bank's Moving for Prosperity report) is that migration has been a powerful driver of development.
In January 2016, representatives of 8 Caribbean Governments attended to a meeting that led to the establishment of the CMC. Delegates stressed that “coordinated policies were required at a regional level to ensure consistent approaches to common problems and that a regional dialogue on these issues was not only desired but essential".
Migration represents an opportunity to empower women and boost their autonomy. Their individual conditions or situations will shape their lives in the countries of origin, transit and destination and determine the nature of the migration process.
