Abstract

This article discusses dilemmas of global civic activism from a neo-Gramscian
perspective as both subordinated and a potential challenge to hegemonic
neoliberal order. With the investigational focus on the People’s Global Action
on Migration, Development and Human Rights (PGA) event, the space for
civic activism relating to the intergovernmental Global Forum on Migration
and Development (GFMD) and its associated Civil Society Days and Common
Space is analysed. The article asks how the future of PGA activism may be
influenced by its formalized representation within the GFMD. It posits that
the PGA has landed at a crossroad between becoming a global activist
counterhegemonic movement to a dominant neoliberal migration policy and
being captured in a tokenist subordinated inclusion within a truncated
‘invited space’ for interchange. This ambiguous position jeopardizes its
impact on global migration governance, discussed with reference to theories
of transversal politics and issues of counterhegemonic alliance-building.

Abstract

The current special issue examines the development of an emerging global
governance on migration and the spaces, roles, strategies and alliancemaking
of a composite transnational civil society engaged in issues of rights
and the protection of migrants and their families. This question is connected
with how different actors – the United Nations, international organizations,
governments and a wide variety of civil society organizations and regional
and global trade unions – perceive the root causes of migration, global
inequality and options for sustainable development. The contributions
included in the special issue interrogate from different perspectives the
positionality and capacity of civil society to influence the Global Forum for
Migration and Development. They examine the opportunities and challenges
faced by civil society in its endeavor to promote a rights-based approach
within international and intergovernmental fora engaged in setting up a
global compact for the management of migration and in other global policy
spaces.
