Regional Input for the Global Compact on Migration

In the lead up to the UN Global Compact on Migration, the Women in Migration Network is seeking input from women in all regions in order to better understand the specific realities faced by women in migration across the world and to formulate policy recommendations.  We want to hear the urgent concerns of women in migration (in home, transit, destination and return countries) and specific policy recommendations.  What policy would improve the lives and fulfill the human rights of women in migration?

Please submit your comments by September 30, 2017. These will be integrated into a document to be shared with UN member states at the December intergovernmental “synthesis” meeting in Guadalajara, Mexico, and in 2018 negotiations on the Global Compact in New York.  

We look forward to hearing from you!
