Migration in an Interconnected World: New Directions for Action

October 5, 2005

ABSTRACT: In its Report, presented to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, UN Members States and other stakeholders on 5 October 2005, the Global Commission on International Migration says the international community has failed to realize the full potential of migration and has not risen to the many opportunities and challenges it presents. The Commission stresses the need for greater coherence, cooperation and capacity to achieve a more effective governance of international migration. The 90-page report provides a comprehensive yet concise analysis of key global policy issues in the field of international migration, and presents six ‘Principles for Action’ and thirty-three related recommendations that can serve as a guide to the formulation of migration policies at the national, regional and global levels.
