The Seventh Global Consultations of Chairs and Secretariats of Principal Regional Consultative Processes on Migration (GRCP 7) took place on the 10th and 11th of October 2017 in Geneva under the theme “Inter-state Consultation Mechanisms on Migration and the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration”. The event was organized by IOM.

GRCP 7 aimed to bring together Inter-state Consultation Mechanisms on Migration as well as their regional partners (UN Regional Commissions and Regional Economic Organizations) to jointly review their respective roles and contributions to the preparatory process of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM). 

The meeting brought together 92 delegates from 22 Inter-state Consultation Mechanisms on migration (ISCM), 5 UN Regional Commissions and 5 Regional economic organizations. 

In anticipation of the event a Survey was conducted among ISCM and their partner organizations (UN Regional Commissions and Regional Economic Organizations) to compile their respective experiences to the GCM.  GRCP 7 resulted in the formulation of joint actionable commitments arising from recommendations on the GCM made by ISCM and partner organizations.  

The Eastern Partnership Panel on Migration and Asylum, the project funded by the European Union and implemented by IOM Ukraine this year was included to the list of Principal Regional Consultative Processes and was also represented at the Global Consultations.
