Held under the theme, “The moral and economic imperative for fairer, smarter and more human migration”, the General Assembly brings together over 50 Speakers and 600 Members of Parliament, from 130 Parliaments.

Addressing the Assembly, Kidega said that migration was a predominant and persistent characteristic of humanity, and that it occupied a central place in human history and current affairs.

He pushed for the uptake of the Political Federation in the East African region saying such move would demystify the refugees’ problem.

“At worst, under the Political Federation, we can only be talking about internally displaced persons and not refugees,” he remarked.

The EALA Speaker further said Parliamentarians need to focus on the migration challenge by probing the root causes of international migration, particularly global processes that are unprecedented in their power to encourage the crossing of borders.

He noted that insecurities in the neighboring countries of the EAC similarly resulted in the migration inflows and the refugees’ problem arising from instability in Somalia, South Sudan, DRC and Burundi was larger than anticipated a few years ago.

The Speaker said the EAC was working towards attaining a sustainable and stable region that boosts and respects the UN agenda, particularly on matters of peace, development, challenge of migration and human rights.

The Speaker is leading a delegation of EALA, consisting of Hon Straton Ndikuryayo and two EALA staff.

Also in attendance are top leaders of the Parliaments of Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Burundi.

The issue of humane migration is taking central stand following the recent Syrian crisis among others.

According to the IPU, although the more than 230 million migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in the world today represent a small percentage of the global population.

The President of IPU, Hon Saber Chowdhury said it was necessary for IPU to consider better migration in order to impact on people’s lives.
