Istikshaf: Exploring Mobility

Regional Mobility and Freedom of Movement Policy Agenda

2012 – 2015

 

This Regional Mobility and Freedom of Movement Policy Agenda aims to develop closer links between a range of stakeholders including mobility operators, government agencies, foundations, donors, voluntary and community organizations, private sector companies, activists and individuals    in delivering specific policies and positions and in understanding their impact.

The Arab Education Forum (Jordan), the International Association for Creation and Training (Egypt), and Roberto Cimetta Fund (France), in collaboration with 36 social and cultural organizations so far, indentified 4 policy areas that included 16 policy positions and recommendations and 21 advocacy actions that should be implemented on a regional level.

POLICY ISSUE I: MOBILITY ON THE NATIONAL AGENDA

We aim to ensure true engagement of all key stakeholders in order to promote and adopt the concept of mobility within the national agendas in the region, with a focus on influencing the cities’ agendas and private sector strategies to acknowledge it as a central theme within its long term vision and strategies.

 

POLICY ISSUE 2: FINANCING MOBILITY

We aim to work with public and private sector institutions and the donor community in the region, in order to agree on clear and transparent mechanisms for allocating budgets and distributing funds to support mobility initiatives with no restrictions on receiving funds and donations. 

 

POLICY ISSUE 3: CROSSING BORDERS

We aim to reach for a free movement of people and ideas across the Arab Countries, where all borders are open without limitations, and to ensure all Arab citizens including artists, social entrepreneurs, men and women are capable of spreading social and cultural initiatives.

 

POLICY ISSUE 4: MOBILIZING COMMUNITIES

 We aim to fully engage people to be supportive of art & culture, mobility initiatives, and the development of their societies, and to reduce the fear factors that limit the participation of men, women and youth from different backgrounds in developing their societies and engage in mobility and artistic initiatives.

 

Istikshaf Coalition Members will be engaged in advocating the policy positions by providing information and data, knowledge, expertise, in-kind and financial support in order to execute the technical and legal research, position papers, and campaigns.
