“The Global Compact speaks to the heart of the mission of the United Nations. It is a global response to a global phenomenon for which we need to be much better prepared. We launched the United Nations Network on Migration to mobilize the full extent of our capacities and expertise to support you, Member States, in advancing the full implementation of the Compact. The Network has since established a Capacity Building Mechanism, including a Migration Network Hub and Multi-Partner Trust Fund – the first of its kind focused on migration. I thank the Member States who have contributed and encourage others to follow suit. And I count on all of you to secure a strong political outcome through tangible, credible, ambitious, and actionable pledges and strong monitoring and follow up mechanisms. Let us keep up the momentum as we work together for a safer and more prosperous future for us all, including migrants.”

5. SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“Migration is a fact of life – in fact, it is as old as human life itself. But too often, it has been poorly managed, uncoordinated, misunderstood, and vilified. Today, over 80 per cent of the world’s migrants move between countries in a safe and orderly fashion. But unregulated migration – the cruel realm of traffickers – continues to extract a terrible cost. We must do more to break the stranglehold of smugglers and better protect migrants in vulnerable situations, in particular women and girls.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration represents the international community’s resolve to put those values into practice in a spirit of solidarity and partnership. To transform how we understand and manage migration. To make it a source of prosperity, not a byword for inhumanity. To end the tragic loss of life, the outrage of rights abuses, and the tinderbox of social tensions too often associated with migration. To confront xenophobia and racism with a clearheaded understanding of the facts. To view it not solely as a problem to fix but rather as a potential solution to many of the challenges we face. And to achieve all this through strengthened international cooperation across all states and stakeholders at all levels.”

STORYLINE:

Addressing at the International Migration Review Forum, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said, “the Global Compact speaks to the heart of the mission of the United Nations. It is a global response to a global phenomenon for which we need to be much better prepared.”

Speaking at the General Assembly in New York today (19 May), Guterres said, “we launched the United Nations Network on Migration to mobilize the full extent of our capacities and expertise to support you, Member States, in advancing the full implementation of the Compact.”

The UN chief continued, “the Network has since established a Capacity Building Mechanism, including a Migration Network Hub and Multi-Partner Trust Fund – the first of its kind focused on migration.”

He thanked the Member States who have contributed and encouraged others to follow suit.

Guterres said, “I count on all of you to secure a strong political outcome through tangible, credible, ambitious, and actionable pledges and strong monitoring and follow up mechanisms.”

He reiterated, “let us keep up the momentum as we work together for a safer and more prosperous future for us all, including migrants.”

The UN chief also said, “migration is a fact of life – in fact, it is as old as human life itself. But too often, it has been poorly managed, uncoordinated, misunderstood, and vilified.”

He continued, “today, over 80 per cent of the world’s migrants move between countries in a safe and orderly fashion. But unregulated migration – the cruel realm of traffickers – continues to extract a terrible cost.”

Guterres reiterated, “we must do more to break the stranglehold of smugglers and better protect migrants in vulnerable situations, in particular women and girls.”

Furthermore, the UN chief said, “the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration represents the international community’s resolve to put those values into practice in a spirit of solidarity and partnership. To transform how we understand and manage migration. To make it a source of prosperity, not a byword for inhumanity. To end the tragic loss of life, the outrage of rights abuses, and the tinderbox of social tensions too often associated with migration. To confront xenophobia and racism with a clearheaded understanding of the facts. To view it not solely as a problem to fix but rather as a potential solution to many of the challenges we face. And to achieve all this through strengthened international cooperation across all states and stakeholders at all levels.”

The global compact for migration is the first, intergovernmentally negotiated agreement, prepared under the auspices of the United Nations, to cover all dimensions of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive manner.
