Abstract

On 5 February 2018 the UN Special Representative on Migration released the Zero Draft for a UN Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. This document will be the basis of the negotiations for a Global Compact which will be adopted in Marrakech in December 2018. In this Working Paper, 17 expert academics from Europe and North America who have been following the UN discussions on the Global Compact provide their commentary on the Zero Draft examining the positive and negative aspects of the Objectives and the necessary follow up.
