News: Global Compact for Migration

A "zero draft plus" was issued 5 March 2018 which, according to the co-facilitators, reflects technical updates and clarifications rather than substantive changes. This IISD news story highlights some of the tweaks. (Here is the text of the initial zero draft, for comparison.)

Further discussion of this revised version will take place during the second round of intergovernmental negotiations slated to take place 12-15 March 2018 in New York. Here is a summary of the exchanges that took place during the first round of talks.
