Labour Migration and the Global Compact: Ensuring Rights, Protections and a Decent Work

 

During the fourth round of negotiations on the Global Compact on Migration, Global Coalition on Migration members across all regions raised targeted proposals on the inclusion of regular pathways into the Compact negotiations and text.
