The League of Arab States (LAS) and the International Organization on Migration (IOM) in partnership with the members of the Regional COVID-19 Task Force on Migration and Mobility organized a Webinar in September 2021 to shed light on the responses in the Arab Region to the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on the efforts of governments, the vaccine rollout programs and the inclusion of migrants and refugees. This webinar aimed to highlight the best practices undertaken by Governments in the Arab region to include vulnerable groups such as migrants, refugees and people on the move in their responses, particularly within the context of the ongoing vaccination rollouts. It also sought to foster dialogue among and within governments to exchange good practices, share key achievements and find common linkages to truly adopt a whole-of-government approach as outlined in the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.
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.
