Defining regional priorities and sharing best practices - an innovative approach to migration governance in Central America, North America, and the Caribbean

Date: -

This side event is a unique opportunity to show how Member Countries of the Regional Conference on Migration (RCM), one of the oldest and most active regional consultative processes (RCPs) in the world, use the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) to identify regional priorities and work towards a comprehensive regional approach to migration governance in Central America, North America, and the Caribbean.

The side event will also feature the presentation of regional best practices on issues such as labour migration, women migrants, the best interest of the child, migrant smuggling, and migrant’ protection, among others, -all of which reflect the consolidated experience of the RCM on key migration issues and its willingness to share important lessons with other RCPs.

Complementing the RCM’s formal written submission to the International Migration Review Forum (IMRF), this side event will demonstrate effective practices of regional cooperation on migration governance and engagement by RCPs with the GCM.
