Challenges and opportunities for the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration

Challenges and opportunities for the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration

The process leading to the adoption of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration at an Intergovernmental Conference to be held in Morocco on 10-11 December 2018 is led by the Permanent Representatives of Switzerland and Mexico to the United Nations, as co-facilitators. Following nearly a year of intense consultations at the global and regional levels covering all aspects of international migration in 2017, intergovernmental negotiations are set to begin on 20 February and conclude in July 2018 after six rounds of negotiations of 3-5 days.

Ahead of negotiations, the Swiss and Mexican co-facilitators invite selected media representatives interested in migration to an in-depth briefing and exchange on the Global Compact. The co-facilitators will explain the rationale of the recently released negotiation document (zero draft), which proposes a comprehensive cooperative framework with 22 objectives along the migration cycle. They will discuss the logic behind the zero draft, the challenges and opportunities of the process, and situate this historic and first-ever multilateral endeavor on migration governance in the current global context.
