19 September 2016 – High Level Summit to Address Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants

In June 2016, the Global Coalition on Migration (GCM) — representing a broad, global, multi-sectoral coalition of civil society organizations supporting migrants’ rights and rights-based migration governance — submitted a civil society perspective on important considerations for the 19 September 2016, High Level Summit to Address Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants.

On 16 July, a second draft of the Global Compact for Refugees was released by the co-facilitators of the Summit on Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants, Ireland and Jordan. It is expected that this Compact will accompany the Political Declaration from the Summit as an annex.
