Localizing the Global Compact for Migration: Gendered Migration Experiences in New York City

Gendered experiences in migration occur along a continuum (origin-, transit-, and destination country): based on a country’s policies, gender dynamics might premise the reason for migration but might also affect experiences along migratory routes and in destination countries. Along this continuum, women, girl, LGBTQIA+, and gender diverse migrants face heightened risks of marginalization, vulnerabilities, and violence. The Global Compact for Migration (GCM) addresses these experiences in its objectives and through a set of guiding principles such as following a people-centered and whole-of-society approach. In connecting the Compact’s objectives and guiding principles in the context of gender, our event “Localizing the Global Compact for Migration: Gendered Migration Experiences in New York City” brings together community leaders to explore the implementation of the GCM in a city setting. The objectives of the event are to identify challenges and opportunities in localizing the GCM through a gender perspective.
