  3. 3. 7Eunomad – UK report 2012 .1. THE EUNOMAD NETWORK 1.1. A public arena for multi-actor dialogue Eunomad is a European network that presents itself as a public arena for multi-actors dialogue on practices linking migration, citizenship, integration and development. In 2007, eleven structures from nine European Union countries took the initia- tive to collaborate on the relationship between migration and development and to address the lack of transparency and recognition of co-development actions, both in North European countries as well as in the South in the countries of ori- gin. To improve best practices in this area and enhance their impact, it appeared necessary to create a European network. In 2012 the network was made up of over one hundred European stakeholders from the civil society, local authorities and the academic world, doing research in the field of migration, development and integration/citizenship (migrant associations, non-governmental organizations, local authorities, research institutes, stakeholder networks and national groups). Stakeholders are grouped in country platforms, which, in turn, are gathered at a European level in the Eunomad network. A laboratory for co-development practices to promote migrants as development actors here and there The values shared within the network are based on the will to: “here and there”. CONTENTS 1.
