De La Rue is proud to be a Specially Accredited Organisation and have been approved to attend and participate in the preparatory process of the global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration by the President’s Office of the General Assembly at the UN.
In accordance with United Nations General Assembly resolution 71/1, the ‘New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants’, a preparatory process is underway for the intergovernmental conference on international migration in 2018. As part of this preparatory process, the President of the General Assembly organised a series of informal thematic sessions between April 2017 and November 2017, as well as four days of informal interactive multi-stakeholder hearings between April 2017 and June 2018, in accordance with the organisational arrangements adopted by the UN General Assembly.
In July 2017, De La Rue actively participated at both the thematic sessions and informal interactive multi-stakeholder hearings of the preparatory process to discuss international cooperation and governance of migration.
We discussed practical and policy requirements that could further enhance the benefits of migration, examples of best practice of cooperation to facilitate safe, orderly and regular migration and any existing platforms and mechanisms that could be strengthened or transferred to further assist.
