We are a member of the Conference of Non Governmental Organizations (CoNGO) in consultative relationship with the United Nations. The mission of the NGO Committee on Migration is to encourage the protection and promotion of migrants’ human rights, in accordance with the United Nations Charter.
Please remember to renew your membership! Dues for 2016 are expected at the beginning of the calendar year. Membership form and information here.
CSW 60 is being launched with a Consultation Day on March 13, which will feature breakout discussion groups on various projects being proposed by NGOs to implement the SDGs. A call has gone out from the NGO CSW for proposals in various areas, including migration, that would address implementation of all relevant SDGs, including Goal 5 (gender equality), in a project crafted to include partnerships especially among NGOs, UN agencies and the private sector, where relevant.
A description of the concept is attached, together with a call for the submission of relevant projects and an example of one project that has already been submitted to the CSW. Up to sixteen projects will be selected from among those submitted for discussion in the breakout sessions on March 13. The deadline is short — January 30.
