IPCM IN THE FACE OF THE GLOBAL COMPACT FOR MIGRATION

inglesThe International Platform for Cooperation and Migration (IPCM) is highly interested in multi-lateral policy on migration and thus:

  1. Warmly welcomes the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, adopted last December 11, 2018, during the intergovernmental conference that took place in Marrakech, Morocco.

  2. Values positively the 23 established objectives and the associated political actions within the framework of cooperation, for a safe, orderly and regular migration throughout the migratory cycle.

  3. Considers it as a great step forward, since the majority of UN member states, including the Holy See, signed this Pact, which deals with one of the most relevant and sensitive issues of our current human reality.

  4. Feels disappointed due to the fact that the EU has not reached a common agreement in this conference because of disparity among national governments criteria.

  5. Reminds that IPCM has always advocated for the need of a European migration and refuge policy, which brings coherence and security to everybody, as evidenced by several statements by IPCM.

  6. Underlines that migration issue is directly linked to development of nations and people, and thus, it is also linked to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the international sphere.

  7. Greatly appreciates that the Global Compact deals with labour issues and opportunities for a decent job. It also appreciates the call to all parties to avoid racism and xenophobia due to ethnic, religious or other reasons.

  8. Values this Global Compact within the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 70th anniversary framework, an essential text that is still absolutely valid, when so many people still see their human rights are being violated or threatened.

  9. Holds its commitment to keep acting, along with its member organizations, in its meetings and seminars, and in its immigrant centers, in order to analyze issues as a whole and, as a consequence, to offer valid solutions, which come from our values, based on Christian humanism, europeism, democracy, liberty and human rights.
