3. Report by Global Commission on International Migration (GCIM)
On 5 October 2005, the GCIM which was launched on 9 December 2003 presented its Report ‘Migration in an interconnected world: New Directions for Action’ to the UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the UN member states.
In its report, the Commission provides a concise and yet wide-ranging analysis of key migration issues and stresses that migration and related policies must be based on shared objectives and a common vision. The Commission proposes a comprehensive, coherent and global action framework based on six broad principles for action and a number of related recommendations covering the role of migrants in a globalizing labour market, migration and development, irregular migration, migrants in society, the human rights of migrants, and the governance of migration.
This report is likely to determine the future directions of research and policy on international migration in a significant way across the world.
