The first International Migration Review Forum (IMRF) has taken place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on 17-20 May 2022. The goal: to review the progress made at the local, national, regional and global levels in implementing the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM). IOM’s Pledges to the International Migration Review Forum can be found here.
The quadrennial International Migration Review Forum was hosted by the President of the UN General Assembly. It consisted of four interactive multi-stakeholder round tables, a policy dialogue, and a plenary. It resulted in an intergovernmentally agreed Progress Declaration. An informal interactive multi-stakeholder hearing, hosted by the PGA, took place on the day immediately preceding the Forum (16 May).
In the General Assembly resolution A/RES/73/195, Member States agreed to review the progress made at the local, national, regional and global levels in implementing the GCM in the framework of the United Nations through a State-led approach and with the participation of all relevant stakeholders.
