Revisiting the plan of action on labour migration governance in consideration of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration
This document reports on the five-year plan of action (2018–22) giving effect to the conclusions of the general discussion on fair and effective labour migration governance, adopted by the International Labour Conference at its 106th Session (2017), and examines the implications for the ILO’s strategic priorities in the light of the adoption in December 2018 of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) by the United Nations General Assembly.
In the present document, the Governing Body is invited to provide guidance on whether any adjustment of the ILO’s plan of action, including in respect of ILO priority actions, would be needed for the ILO to effectively support the implementation of the Global Compact commitments on labour migration, while also meeting constituents’ needs (see the draft decision in paragraph 26). In the (Rev.) version of 13 March, a correction has been introduced in paragraph 21
