IOM and the 2013 UN High Level Dialogue on International Migration and Development

Background

On 3 and 4 October 2013, the UN General Assembly held the second High Level Dialogue on International Migration and Development (“HLD”) in New York, following the first HLD of 2006.
As the global lead agency on migration, IOM has been requested by its Member States and by the UN General Assembly to participate in and contribute to the HLD, together with its UN partners. The 2013 HLD presented an important opportunity to improve the governance of migration – in particular as regards the protection of the human rights of all migrants; perceptions of migrants and migration; and reflection of migration in national and global development agendas.

For more detail, see IOM’s Position Paper on HLD and read IOM’s plenary statement at the HLD. IOM also participated in the thematic round tables and in various side events (see below).
