Abstract

The decision to make IOM a “related agency” at the September high-level meeting on refugees and migrants merely delays institutional reform in the hopes of building consensus later for a global compact for migration. The UN needs a lead agency for migration.

Keywords: migration, refugees, migrants, asylum, IOM, UN, international organization, cooperation, development
