Secours Catholique-Caritas France's contribution to the European Regional Review of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration on March 11th 2024

As the second Regional Review of the Global Compact on Migration takes place, Secours Catholique - Caritas France would like to draw the attention of decision-makers to the multiple crises affecting migrants.

Even though the Global Compact on Migration offers, on paper, substantial points of support on the key issues of protecting the rights of migrants, there is a huge gap between the commitments made under the Compact and the reality. In particular, we are witnessing a crisis in policies that all too often run counter to commitments to protect migrants and respect their human rights.

This short paper presents Secours Catholique Caritas France's call to policy makers to implement policies centered on the protection of the human rights of migrants. The paper also call to take into account the protection needs of people that leave their homes in anticipation of or in response to climate change and environmental degradation.
