Date: 
15 May, 2018

During the negotiations on a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), Member States have attached a high priority to rooting the discussion around the 2030 Agenda and the issue of decent work and labour migration.

However, careful consideration needs to be given to effective governance of temporary labour migration schemes.This side event will provide an opportunity for GCM negotiators from Member States, civil society, particularly migrant-led and regional/Global South networks and trade unions to address potential benefits and pitfalls for the inclusion of such migration schemes in the GCM.
