National Consultation for Global Compact on Migration

Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration (GCM), to be adopted by the UN member States in 2018, offers the international community an opportunity to contribute to global migration governance. As a part of the preparation to adopt the GCM, each country is required to have a Multi-Stakeholder National Consultation. IPS Research Fellow, Bilesha Weeraratne, served as the IOM Consultant for the GCM National Consultation process in Sri Lanka, and carried out the Multi-Stakeholder National Consultations and prepared the National Outcome Report under the six thematic clusters of the GCM – Human Rights, Drivers of Migration, Governance, Diaspora and Development, Smuggling and Trafficking, and Irregular Migration and Regular Pathways.
