Foundations for Implementation: QUNO launches new guidebook for States implementing the Global Compact for Migration

For the past few years, QUNO has worked to support the development and implementation of an ambitious, effective and human rights based Global Compact for Migration.

In December 2018, representatives from the Human Rights and Refugees programme traveled to Marrakesh to attend the 2018 Intergovernmental Conference to Adopt the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

There, we launched 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.

A digital version is also available at the end of this post.
