Starting from the Global Compact for safe, orderly and regular migration (GCM), we will be discussing some of its objectives in a pragmatic way and hopefully productive way.

The workshops are open to a variety of stakeholders including Civil Society Organisations, Institutions and migrants themselves. We will be discussing the following GCM objectives:

Objective no. 10: Prevent, combat and eradicate trafficking in persons in the context of international migration.

Objective no. 16: Empower migrants and societies to realize full inclusion and social cohesion.

Objective no. 17: Eliminate all forms of discrimination and promote evidence-based public discourse to shape perceptions of migration.

Objective no. 23: Strengthen international cooperation and global partnerships for safe, orderly and regular migration.

After our sessions are finished The IOM Global Migration Film Festival will be hosting the film screening of "Deltas Back to Shores" from 18:30 to 20:30.
