Title International Dialogue on Migration 2018 – Inclusive and innovative partnerships for effective global governance of migration
Date March 26-27, 2018
Location Conference Room 2, United Nations Headquarters, New York
This event will be the first of two IDM sessions dedicated in 2018 to the topic of inclusive and innovative partnerships for effective global governance of migration. The discussions will explore different partnership models that exist in the migration field and showcase their value by presenting some of the migration management tools developed through cooperation among different actors. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange good practices and experiences on successful and inclusive partnerships at local, national, regional and international levels, evaluate both achievements and challenges encountered, and consider what can be done to replicate and scale up such partnerships elsewhere.
Partnership and cooperation are cornerstones of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and essential for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Goal 17 calls for the revitalization and enhancement of the global partnership for sustainable development in all areas, including migration. The recent report of the United Nations Secretary-General, Making migration work for all, states that “Managing migration is one of the most urgent and profound tests of international cooperation in our time.”
