Global agreement changes limiting view on migration

Date • 17 Oct 2018

Tens of thousands of refugees and migrants have died in the last few years, during attempts to reach Europe on boats over the Mediterranean or via unsafe overland routes. In December, 193 countries are expected to adopt The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, which would be the first global, UN-driven attempt to cover all aspects of international migration. While it is a laudable effort, there are risks too, say migration experts.
