New policy paper for the Global compact on migration

The Business Mechanism published a short document that suggests targeted actions for governments, defined as priorities for the private sector, for inclusion in the Global compact for safe, regular and orderly migration (GCM). This document is based on the comprehensive policy paper outlining the private sector’s recommendations : “Toward a global compact on migration: Perspectives on labour migration from the GFMD Business Mechanism”, as well as on extensive consultations of different industries from various regions.

Read the paper: Recommendations and Targeted actions 


The five main policy areas discussed include:

  1. Leveraging skills mobility to advance global opportunity
  2. Innovations for migrant and refugee access to labour markets
  3. Irregular migration and labour market solutions
  4. Responsible recruitment
  5. Entrepreneurship and circular migration

The paper thoroughly addresses these five topics, and provides clear policy private sector recommendations and targeted actions for the GCM.

The business mechanism is committed to bridge the world of business with labour migration policy makers to ensure that the global migration framework take into account labour market needs.
