This December, representatives from the Human Rights and Refugees programme will travel to Marrakesh to attend the 2018 Intergovernmental Conference to Adopt the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.
There they will launch a new publication, entitled 'Foundations for Implementation', a guide to assist States in the implementation of the Global Compact for Migration. The publication brings together explicit existing recommendations drawn from the UN's Special Procedures and Treaty Bodies presented in line with the Compact's 23 objectives. The intention is that this publication will offer authoritative guidance to assist States in meeting the agreed objectives through practical actions. The hope is that this will contribute to a shift in migration governance, and the support of an ambitious, effective and human rights based implementation of the Global Compact.
On Sunday 9th December QUNO will be launching 'Foundations for Implementation' at a side event at Marrakesh entitled 'Advising for Action: Expert Technical Advice and Guidance for Implementation from the UN Special Procedures and Treaty Bodies.
A digital version of Foundation for Implementation is available at the end of this post.
