News | 5-year Agenda Proposal for HLD

On 15 November 2012, more than 70 organizations around the world endorsed a 5-point statement regarding civil society-related modalities of the 2013 UN High Level Dialogue on International Migration & Development (HLD.)

Members of the Global Coalition on Migration, along with GFMD Civil Society Days Coordinator (International Catholic Migration Commission – ICMC), and the NGO Committee on Migration, then developed a proposal to further elaborate the thematic issues on global migration policy and recommended that the UN create a 5-year agenda for implementation.  The document was submitted to the UN on 30 November 2012.

The GCM is proposing to seek broad support and to continue to use this document as a framework to develop global civil society’s collective advocacy and actions around the HLD and onwards, beginning next February in New York at the 11th Coordination Meeting on International Migration (CM11).  We hope that it can become a central focus of our advocacy work for the HLD and beyond.
