During the plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg yesterday, the European Commission reiterated its strong support to the United Nations Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, which is going to be adopted at an Intergovernmental Conference in Marrakesh, Morocco on 10-11 December 2018.

Speaking on behalf of the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid & Crisis Management Christos Stylianides said: “In our globalised world, human mobility can only be addressed effectively by the international community as a whole. It is a global phenomenon that requires global solutions. No country can manage this alone, but together we can set up a humane, dignified and secure mechanism for governing human mobility. This is why the Commission strongly supports the Global Compacts and will be actively engaging in their follow up.”
