Global Migration Pact: Where Do We Stand?

Robert Bosch Stiftung

The adoption of the Global Compact for Migration in December 2018 was a milestone. For the first time, the overwhelming majority of the global community agreed at the UN on standards for dealing with migrants in order to ensure "safe, orderly and regular migration" worldwide. From May 17 to 20, heads of state and government and non-state actors as well as mayors from around the world will meet in New York for the "International Migration Review Forum". In her analysis, migration expert Raphaela Schweiger traces the genesis of the GCM and shows what progress has actually been made in international migration policy as a result of the pact and in which areas there is a need to catch up.
