The zero draft of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration released
On 5 February 2018, the zero draft of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (the zero draft) was released. This marks the commencement of the formal intergovernmental negotiation phase of the Global Compact process. The zero draft represents a gathering of information and views that have been received by the co-facilitators (Switzerland and Mexico) of the process since the adoption of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants in September 2016 and will form the basis of negotiations leading up to the adoption of the final Global Compact in December 2018.
The intergovernmental negotiations on the Global Compact for Migration will be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The scheduled activities will take place from 5 February 2018 to 13 July 2018.
