Network Members

Network Members

The Network consists of those members of the UN system who wish to be a part of it and for whom migration is of relevance to their mandates. Within that Network, an Executive Committee will be established, comprised of those entities with clear mandates, technical expertise and capacity in migration-related fields.

Network members will contribute to the design and implementation of the Network’s objectives, promote coherence on migration within the UN system, and provide input and advice to the Executive Committee, including on strategic priorities. 

Network members may serve as chair or co-chair of the Network’s Working Groups and participate in them as members. They will be consulted on the focus, composition and review of the Working Groups.

Network members will provide inputs to the Secretariat for the preparation of the Network’s reporting to the Secretary-General and the annual meetings of the Network (see para. 36).
Network members will also serve on the multi-partner decision-making body of the capacity building mechanism’s start-up fund.
