This week, United Nations member states meet in New York to develop a Global Compact on Safe, Regular and Orderly Migration.
International migration is at historically high levels, as millions flee conflict and persecution, or seek opportunity. Red Cross Red Crescent is present at every stage of a migrant’s journey – in the places they come from, the places they flee to, the places they are detained, and the places they settle.
We are proud to be part of the Global Compact discussions. We call on all governments to go beyond good intentions, and put people’s safety and dignity first.
