The mission of the NGO Committee on Migration (CoM) is to encourage the protection and promotion of migrants’ human rights in accordance with the United Nations Charter. As a member of the Conference of Non-Governmental Organizations (CoNGO), we are in consultative relationship with the United Nations. 

In the 2020-2022 term, the CoM is focusing on four areas, each of which is being addressed by a Subcommittee:

  • Migrants in Vulnerable Situations / Mixed Migration
  • Xenophobia & Social Inclusion
  • Climate-Induced Displacement
  • Refugee & Migrant Children

Check out our Subcommittee pages to learn what work we are doing on each of these fronts.

The NGO Committee on Migration is requesting responses to a survey prepared by the Subcommittee on Xenophobia and Social Inclusion to assess the impact COVID-19 has had on the migrant population in relation to xenophobia and social exclusion.

The survey is available here in English, Spanish, and French. Please send it out as widely as possible through your networks.

We are seeking replies from NGOs, academia, civil society institutions and United Nations entities in order to obtain as comprehensive data as possible on this essential grassroots work. Please consult the linked survey for an account of how we plan to use the data and publish the results.
