Un Gcm Agreement
Un Gcm Agreement
The agreement does not distinguish between illegal and legal migrants, but it repeatedly distinguishes between regular and irregular migrants, reaffirms the right of states to distinguish between regular and irregular migration status  and commits to “preventing irregular migration”.  The text does not distinguish between economic migrants and refugees.  The agreement lists the measures that governments can draw on, including “promoting independent, objective and quality media coverage, including information on the internet, including media awareness and education on migration and terminology issues” and “supporting multicultural activities through sport, music, the arts , culinary festivals, volunteering and other social events.”   Check Reality examined the details of the agreement and why it resisted so much. Criticism has increased in Europe as the date of the signing of the agreement approaches. The draft agreement lists 23 objectives and commitments. This includes collecting and using accurate and anonymous data to develop an evidence-based migration policy, to ensure the identity of all migrants, to improve the availability and flexibility of regular migration, to promote cooperation in monitoring missing persons and to save lives, to ensure that migrants have access to basic services and to provide provisions for both the full participation of migrants and the social cohesion.  General Assembly President Miroslav Lajak called the agreement a “historic moment” and stressed: “It does not promote migration and does not want to stop it. It is not legally binding. She doesn`t dictate. It will not impose. And it fully respects the sovereignty of states.  Germany supported the agreement, but faced strong opposition. “In fact, illegal immigration is legalized,” said Alice Weidel, group leader of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.
At the same event, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said “myths” about the agreement. The Global Compact on Migration is the first interstate agreement, developed under the auspices of the United Nations, covering all dimensions of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive manner. Supporters of the deal say it will promote cooperation and improve the treatment of millions of migrants, but critics fear it will further promote illegal immigration. In this context, after 18 months of consultations and negotiations, non-member states have agreed to adopt a global pact for safe, orderly and regular migration (draft final document available in all official languages). This is the first undying global agreement on a common approach to international migration in all its dimensions. The Global Compact for Security, Order and Regular Migration is an intergovernmentally negotiated agreement developed under the aegis of the United Nations. The Global Compact for Migration is the first untover global agreement on a common approach to international migration in all its dimensions. The global pact is not legally binding. Based on values of sovereignty, shared responsibility, non-discrimination and human rights, it recognizes the need for a cooperative approach to maximizing the overall benefits of migration while addressing the risks and challenges faced by individuals and communities in countries of origin, transit and destination.
