Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 27 febbraio 2018

Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos, representatives of international organisations (UNHCR, OIM), the European External Action Service and the Bulgarian Presidency as well as members of EU national parliaments, will participate in the debate.The New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, adopted by the UN General Assembly in September 2016, marked the beginning of multilateral negotiations for the adoption of two global compacts on refugees -with the objective of a fairer sharing of the burden and responsibility for hosting and supporting refugees worldwide- and for safe, orderly and regular migration, aimed at ensuring adequate treatment of migrants in vulnerable situations.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was tasked to develop the practical aspects of the Global Compact on refugees. A final text of the Global Compact on Refugees will be proposed by the High Commissioner for adoption by the UN General Assembly in 2018. Mr Volker Türk, Assistant High Commissioner for Protection, will present to the committee the progress achieved so far. The discussions for the Global Compact for safe, orderly and regular migration are conducted through intergovernmental negotiations, chaired by two co-facilitators (Mexico and Switzerland). Both the Mexican and Swiss Ambassadors to the UN, H.E. Juan José Gómez Camacho and H.E. Jürg Lauber, respectively, will attend the meeting. The European Parliament as a whole plans to vote on a resolution on the UN Global Compacts in the March plenary session, in Strasbourg.
