First Capacity Building Workshop on the Regional Review of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration in the Arab Region

Event Type: 

In preparation for the first regional review of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), planned to take place at the end of 2020, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UN-ESCWA), the League of Arab States (LAS), and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), in collaboration with the Issue Based Coalition on Migration in the Arab Region, are organizing a series of online capacity building workshops to support Member States in developing their national reviews of GCM implementation.

The aim of these workshops is to raise the awareness and build the capacities of Arab States’ designated focal points on migration on the GCM principles and objectives, and the 360-degree approach to its implementation, follow-up and review. The workshops will also provide an opportunity for Member State representatives to discuss means to develop their voluntary GCM reviews, exchange experiences and best practices in preparing them, and ensure that they are aligned with the guiding principles of the GCM. 

The first capacity building workshop took place on 25 June 2020.
