The background document entitled: ‚Overview of the UN Secretary-General’s report on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration‘ from our partner organisation FOCSIV summarises the main messages of the recent Report of the UN Secretary General in view of the International Forum for the Review of the Global Compact on Migration (GCM), that will take place in May 2022. The Secretary-General’s report highlights some progress in the implementation of the GCM, but several issues plague the governance of migration, from deaths and suffering along the borders, to unjustified rejections and detention, to growing xenophobia and racism. Civil society organisations are committed to calling for better implementation of migration policies.
Enhancing migration for sustainable development is the best policy to guarantee human rights, foster social and economic inclusion, leading to common progress according to the Agenda 2030. This makes even more sense today, given the need to protect Ukrainian refugees. A cooperative government of migration is indispensable. The background document ‚Overview of the UN Secretary-General’s report on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration’ is part of our project entitled ‚SDGs and Migration – Multipliers and Journalists Addressing Decision Makers and Citizens in the EU‘ implemented within the framework of the Development Education and Awareness Raising (DEAR) programme.
