Launch Event- Guidance Note on Regular Pathways for Admission and Stay for Migrants in Situations of Vulnerability
The United Nations Network on Migration Thematic Working Group 3 on Regular Pathways for Migrants in Vulnerable Situations is launching its Guidance Note on Regular Pathways for Admission and Stay for Migrants in Situations of Vulnerability.
The Guidance Note has been developed to support implementation of the GCM’s specific commitment to expand and diversify the availability and flexibility of pathways for regular migration in order to respond to the needs of migrants in situations of vulnerability (GCM Objectives 5 and 7).
It aims to aid Member States and other stakeholders in their capacity to analyse the need for and strengthen the design, implementation, monitoring, and review of pathways for admission and stay for migrants in situations of vulnerability; considers matters relating to the availability and flexibility of pathways, admission and stay procedures, and the resulting conditions and duration of relevant measures.
The development of this Guidance Note has been informed by a mapping study, desk research, and a rich array of Member States and stakeholder inputs, garnered through key informant interviews, responses to a multi-stakeholder questionnaire and a multi-stakeholder workshop.
The Launch Event will present the Guidance Note and engage participants in an active discussion which will showcase promising practices and opportunities to expand and diversify the availability of pathways for migrants in situations of vulnerability when implementing the GCM.
Participants will include representatives of Member States, International Organisations, Civil Society Organisations, and other stakeholders. Participation by government representatives working in capitals at the technical level on pathways-related issues is encouraged.
