The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) and the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR) were broadly adopted in December 2018. The adoption of the global compacts has been one of the main developments on international migration governance for decades.

This talk will explore the process for adoption of the compacts focusing particularly on the GCM and also looking at its content. It will explore whether the compacts could be used as a tool or whether their adoption has been a missed opportunity. The talk will also focus on the global architecture for implementation of the global compacts and how new mechanisms and processes are developing.
