The report is a joint effort of the Global Coalition on Migration (GCM) and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) to generate momentum for rights-based, migrant-centered and gender-responsive implementation of the
Global Compact for Migration. These organizations see the UN International Migration Review Forum as a key moment for states to renew commitment to this rights agenda through concrete pledges, benchmarks, and new ways of approaching migration policy.

Who we are

The Global Coalition on Migration (GCM) is a multi-sector alliance of regional and international networks that strives to impact global policy on migration and migrant and labour rights, by sharing strategies, empowering, mobilizing and leading in common action towards advancing human rights and global justice for migrants and their families. GCM’s approach to rights-based policy is both rooted in and dependent on its members’ ability to connect that framework to implementation at national, state or even city levels.

As a network of networks, GCM members are rooted in their regional as well as national realities, where migration policies play out in varying ways. For more information, visit our website.
