UK Elections: Diaspora Connections? (Philippine Generations event)

Philippine Generations are holding this event on Tuesday, April 27, 2010 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM. More information at:

Did you see the Leaders debate? Did you feel that the voice of the poorest people in the world had a chance to be heard?

In the similar light, People Participation Practice, Philippine Generations and Development Impact for Nigeria (DFIN), together with the help of VSO, are hosting a pre-election debate that will focus on issues directly relevant to the diaspora communities and their country and region of origin.This debate, “UK Elections – diaspora connections? How your vote affects the ‘folks back home’ will be on next Tuesday, 27th April at Brunei Gallery, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).

Political representatives from the 4 major political parties are confirmed to participate, to share their insights and party political stands on international development and other global issues that BME/migrants/diaspora communities care about. We are inviting diaspora/ migrant organisations, local BME groups, international development NGOs and general public. We believe that we have an important role to play in shaping future UK government policies. This is our chance to ask challenging questions, to air out our concerns — prove that we are not a minority voice!

We will be inviting journalists from the media, including grassroots diaspora press to cover this community debate.
