Motivation for the monographic
Following the adoption in 2016 of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, an intergovernmental consultation and negotiation process was initiated with the aim of adopting two important global compacts on human mobility: the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration and the Global Compact for Refugees. The two instruments, while complementary, have different objectives, modalities, and review mechanisms.
The Compact on Migration, adopted in Marrakesh in 2018, represents a historic opportunity to improve migration governance and to strengthen the contributions of migration and migrants to sustainable development. The Compact on Refugees represents the political will and ambition of the international community to uphold the right to asylum, and to strengthen policies and practices in protecting and providing access to essential rights for refugees in a sustainable manner with the countries that host them.
Three years after its adoption and taking the opportunity of the upcoming follow-up reviews of these, this issue wants to take the opportunity to analyze and reflect on the current challenges of human mobility management. To this end, the issue will pay attention to recent transformations in the movement of people, and seeks especially to analyze the public policies, objectives, instruments, and actions that articulate the multilevel governance of people's mobility. Special attention will be paid to regional governance dynamics, and to proposals that can contribute to the global processes of reviewing the implementation of the two Global Compacts.
Thus, the objective of this issue is to report objectively and rigorously on the political and normative processes related to the factors, conditions, and management of human mobility (asylum seekers, refugees, persons in need of international protection, and forcibly displaced persons, as well as migrants and stateless persons), and to promote an objective, demystified and de-ideologized narrative of this phenomenon. In addition, it seeks to open debates and make proposals that contribute to a global governance of mobility, from an inclusive perspective of human rights, gender and development, with the explicit objective of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to leave no one behind.
