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 2016-2017 term, the CoM is focusing on four areas, each of which is being addressed by a Subcommittee:

  • Follow-up on the New York Declaration on Refugees and Migrants
  • Xenophobia and Social Inclusion
  • Climate-Induced Displacement
  • Refugee and Migrant Children

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