Migration Week is an umbrella event inviting the Network’s partners at the global, regional and national levels, to hold or participate in events or activities as they prepare for the IMRF.
Bringing together a wide range of partners – both Member States, stakeholders and the United Nations system – and underpinned by the shared vision and guiding principles of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM). Migration Week will be an opportunity to showcase good practices in the implementation of the GCM, while galvanizing strong engagement by all actors three months ahead of the Forum.
