The Role of National Human Rights Institutions in Advancing Implementation of the Global Compact for Migration

The Role of National Human Rights Institutions in Advancing Implementation of the Global Compact for Migration

The Global Compact for Migration (Global Compact), adopted in 2018, is a significant commitment from governments to take a people centered and human rights-based approach to migration policy and to work together towards the achievement of its objectives. This focus on people and on migrants as rights holders aligns closely with the mandate and mission of national human rights institutions (NHRIs).

By virtue of their unique mandates and functions in line with the United Nations Paris Principles, NHRIs can provide a human rights-based, expert and evidence-based assessment of progress made in implementation of the Global Compact for Migration, identifying gaps, whilst offering recommendations to overcome them.

The Global Compact recognizes the critical role of NHRIs and encourages NHRIs, the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions (GANHRI) and NHRI regional networks to engage in Global Compact implementation, follow-up and review, at national, regional and global levels.

This event will focus on the unique role and experiences of NHRIs worldwide in advancing implementation of the Global Compact for Migration.
