Grassroots Voices: Spotlight on Migrant Perspectives towards the IMRF

Upcoming report about key issues affecting migrants at the grassroots, national and regional levels.

The Spotlight Report on Global Migration (SRGM) was published in April 2022 as a contribution to the International Migration Review Forum (IMRF) process. It focuses on key issues affecting migrants at the grassroots, national and regional levels, and brings grassroots organizations, activists, and communities’ voices to the forefront in speaking to decision-makers at the policy-level.

The report is a joint effort of the Global Coalition on Migration (GCM) with the support of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) to generate momentum for rights-based, migrant-centred, and gender-responsive implementation of the Global Compact for Migration. These organizations see the UN International Migration Review Forum as a key moment for states to renew commitment to this human rights agenda through concrete pledges, benchmarks, and new ways of approaching migration policy

The report contains six articles targeted at decision-makers in the context of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration as well as policy makers in general. The following topics are addressed: Regular labour pathways; access to services; social protection and economic, social and cultural rights; criminalization – detention and returns; migrant workers’ rights; protection at the borders; climate related displacement.
