UN Global Compact Preparatory Process for Migration Policies: Red Dot Foundation's Online Consultation for July 2017
Red Dot Foundation has received special accreditation to the Global Compact preparatory process for Migration by the United Nations Member States.
In accordance with United Nations General Assembly resolution 71/1, the "New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants," a preparatory process is underway for the intergovernmental negotiations of a global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration, to be adopted at an intergovernmental conference on international migration in 2018. As part of this preparatory process, the President of the General Assembly is organising a series of informal thematic sessions between April 2017 and November 2017, as well as four days of informal interactive multi-stakeholder hearings between April 2017 and June 2018, in accordance with the organisational arrangements adopted by the UN General Assembly.

July's consultation deals with policies around the theme of, "Contributions of migrants and diasporas to all dimensions of sustainable development, including remittances and portability of earned benefits."
