Child Rights in the Global Compact for Migration - Side event on the margins of the Fifth round of intergovernmental negotiations on the Global Compact

The development of the first inter-governmentally negotiated document on migration prepared under the auspices of the United Nations – the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration – is now in its final and critical stage. With only two negotiating sessions remaining in June and July 2018, it is imperative that all actors work closely together to ensure that the Global Compact is child-sensitive and grounded on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, in particular in its principles of non-discrimination, the best interests of the child, the right to life, survival and development as well as respect for the views of the child.
