Human rights must be at the centre of the implementation of the Global Compact on Migration in Europe

ENNHRI has made a submission for the Regional Review of the Global Compact on Migration (GCM), providing information on the implementation of the GCM in Europe. The submission summarises findings and recommendations from National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in Europe in the field of asylum and migration.

In particular, the contribution focuses on ENNHRI’s work related to these three GCM objectives:

  • Objective 11: Manage borders in an integrated, secure and coordinated manner
  • Objective 13: Use migration detention only as a measure of last resort and work towards alternatives
  • Objective 15: Provide access to basic services for migrants.

It provides a short overview of human rights challenges identified by NHRIs as well as recommendations from NHRIs and ENNHRI in relation to these GCM objectives.
