On Tuesday 9 November 2021, the UN Network on Migration hosted the 4th Quarterly Meeting with Stakeholders and Partners. This was the last quarterly consultation before the Annual Meeting of the UN Network on Migration, which will take place on 9-10 December 2021. The purpose of the meeting was to provide a space for discussion and information-sharing between the UN Network on Migration and stakeholders on the forthcoming International Migration Review Forum (IRMF) to be held in May 2022.
This consultation was attended by 180 participants, including about 150 stakeholders from a diverse array of sectors (trade unions, civil society, gender, children and youth, faith-based organizations, local authorities, the private sector and others), representing all categories of stakeholders identified in the GCM (para 44), except media, joined by members of the Network.
This report outlines key points raised during the meeting on the multiple entry points for stakeholder engagement in the IMRF preparatory activities and the different components of the Forum itself, on stakeholder accreditation and registration to the IMRF, on the structure of the Forum, as well as on the key thematic priorities and emerging issues that are of significance for the different stakeholder sectors in the roundtable and policy discussions.
