Countries across the UNECE region have taken strides in the implementation of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular migration. Some practices have shone as leading examples in how to co-advance GCM Objectives and Guiding Principles, whilst facilitating regional cooperation.  

For example, the Diaspora Succeeds at Home Program, “DAR 1+3”, in the Republic of Moldova, spearheaded by the Swiss Cooperation Office in Moldova and the Government of the Republic of Moldova, strengthens the linkages between migrants and their hometowns by ensuring their right to be engaged with the decision-making process at local public authority level. By leveraging the human and financial potential of diaspora to drive local socio-economic development, DAR 1+3 co-advances the GCM Guiding Principles “people centred”, “sustainable development”, “national sovereignty” and “whole of society approach”, amongst others, as well as GCM Objective 19 “migration and diaspora contributions” and SDG Goal 11, “sustainable cities and communities”.  

This program sets itself apart from others through its unique “migrant-centred approach” which prioritises responding to the needs and rights of those who are often excluded, vulnerable and disadvantaged by conventional modes of migration management. To illustrate, inclusion of migrants at the decision-making table gives them an opportunity to articulate issues within their localities and to receive funds from the diaspora to implement projects that directly respond to their identified needs, such as kindergartens, medical centres, recreational and educational areas like playgrounds and sports fields. Implementation of the GCM is, after all, not just about the What but also about the How. 

Other Good Practices in migration policy have focused on other themes. For example, in North Macedonia, “Evidence-based migration policy planning and discourse” (2021-2025), a Joint-Programme facilitated by the Multi-Partner Trust Fund, supports the government and its partners to design evidence-based and coordinate migration policy, drawing on knowledge, skills and practices from diverse stakeholders and across the sub-region to reinforce the application of tools to improve the migration database. For example, official South-South cooperation visits were organised between the National Bank of the Republic of North Macedonia and the Central Bank of Albania to exchange experiences and share best practices related to remittances. 

These two examples represent the tip of the iceberg in terms of what can be done by governments and stakeholders to promote regional cooperation in GCM implementation. What are your experiences?

Question 4. Please outline areas (GCM objectives and/or guiding principles) where the region would benefit from strengthened cooperation in terms of:

Capacity-building, policy advice, data availability including collection, sharing and analysis, technology, multi-stakeholder partnerships, and others. Likewise, outline areas that have been prioritized and have gathered more momentum, and why.

Обозначьте, пожалуйста, области (цели и/или руководящие принципы ГДМ), в которых регион мог бы извлечь выгоду за счет укрепления сотрудничества в сфере наращивания потенциала, рекомендаций по выработке политик, наличия данных, включая сбор, обмен и анализ данных, технологий, многосторонних партнерств и др. Кроме того, укажите, пожалуйста, области, которые были приоритезированы и набрали больший импульс, и почему.

Décrivez les domaines (objectifs et/ou principes directeurs du GCM) où la région bénéficierait d'une coopération renforcée en termes de renforcement des capacités, de conseils politiques, de disponibilité des données, y compris la collecte, le partage et l'analyse, de technologie, de partenariats multi-acteurs, et autres. De même, décrivez les domaines qui ont été priorisés et qui ont gagné en dynamisme, et pourquoi.

Delinee áreas (objetivos y/o principios rectores del PMM) donde la región se beneficiaría de una cooperación fortalecida en términos de creación de capacidad, asesoramiento sobre políticas, disponibilidad de datos, incluida la recopilación, el intercambio y el análisis de datos, tecnología, asociaciones de múltiples partes interesadas, y otras áreas. Asimismo, describa las áreas que han sido priorizadas y han cobrado más impulso, y por qué.

Hi everyone – I'm Mia. Welcome to the discussion!  

This Guiding Question asks you to reflect on how regional cooperation on GCM implementation, in terms of both objectives and guiding principles, can be improved. Where are the gaps and sticking points? What would you like to see changed moving forward? But I also want to know what has gone well - let me know where you feel regional cooperation has been a success. If you face any technical difficulties, please let us know.

The call for "Nothing about migrants without migrants" resonated throughout the inaugural International Migration Review Forum. The Regional Migration Reviews present a chance to substantiate this call rather than letting it remain a rhetoric. Placing migrants' experiences and expertise at the forefront during all phases and levels of the GCM implementation, spanning policy design to on-the-ground impact assessment, is crucial for realizing the GCM's goals and honoring the pledge to human rights-centric migration governance.

QUNO has released a briefing paper on enhancing meaningful migrant participation as well as a concise how-to guide on migrant and stakeholder engagement with the Reviews to promote and strengthen engagement - we are uploading the briefing paper with this comment and have posted a second reply to this discussion question that gives access to our guide. 

The objective is not solely to enhance migrant participation in the Regional Reviews but to achieve improvement through them. Success should not be gauged solely by the number of migrants engaged in the meeting but by how these processes amplify the involvement of migrants in decision-making across local, national, regional, and global levels.

About the Migration Network Hub

What is the Migration Network Hub?

The Hub is a virtual “meeting space” where governments, stakeholders and experts can access and share migration-related information and services. It provides curated content, analysis and information on a variety of topics.

The Hub aims to support UN Member States in the implementation, follow-up and review of the Global Compact for Migration by serving as a repository of existing evidence, practices and initiatives, and facilitating access to knowledge sharing via online discussions, an expert database and demand-driven, tailor-made solutions (launching in 2021).

What content is displayed in the Hub?

The Hub aims to help you find information on migration, ranging from policy briefs and journal articles, existing portals and platforms and what they offer, to infographics and videos. The different types of resources submitted by users undergo peer review by a panel of experts from within the UN and beyond, before being approved for inclusion in the Hub. To provide guidance to users based on findings of the needs assessment, the content is ordered so that more comprehensive and global resources are shown before more specific and regional ones. Know a great resource? Please submit using the links above and your suggestion will be reviewed. Please see the draft criteria for existing practices here.

Apply to join the Peer Review Roster

Content submitted to the Migration Network Hub is first peer reviewed by experts in the field from both the UN and beyond. Applications are welcomed to join the roster on an ongoing basis. Learn more here.
