- MIGRATION AND HUMAN RIGHTS: ALTERNATIVES TO ADMINISTRATIVE COERCIVE MEASURES
The International conference that took place on July, 5th, 2010 is a project - part of the Transatlantic Forum for Migration and Integration (TFMI) and was made possible by the support of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the German Marshall Fund of the United States. In Bulgaria, TFMI is represented by its partners Center for European Refugees Migration and Ethnic Studies (CERMES), at the New Bulgarian University and Center for Legal Aid – Voice in Bulgaria (CLA).
The Transatlantic Forum on Migration and Integration (TFMI) is a multilateral network and learning community of future leaders and relevant institutions in immigration and integration from Europe, North America and sending countries. The network consists of multiple activities and formats throughout the year and fosters the exchange of young leaders and relevant institutions from business, government, media, academia, and the nonprofit sector. By exploring multiple perspectives on immigration and integration issues, TFMI participants share ideas for best practices, form lasting and sustainable professional relationships across political and national boundaries, and become equipped to guide the political decision-making process and shaping public discourse on these issues. TFMI was established in 2008 by the German Marshall Fund of the United States and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
