Presentations Corner: Toolbox for migration governance

Venue:

Description

[International Organization for Migration (IOM)]
 
Migration is one of the key governance areas that require policy coherence and coordination mechanisms that central, local and regional authorities need in order to manage diversity for social cohesion and sustainable urban development. Mayors and local authorities have a crucial role in developing inclusive policies that facilitate the integration of migrants into local areas but are often not involved in policy processes at the national or international level, and are not equipped with the necessary tools to develop comprehensive migration-relevant approaches.
 
The Toolbox for migration governance is thought to serve as a consultation document between the various levels of the government and partners to help define the complementary roles in governing migration. It supports the governmental actors to jointly conduct an initial assessment in terms of institutional capacity, policy coherence (i.e. are policies contradictory?) and policy comprehensiveness (i.e. are migration needs addressed in all relevant sectors and policy areas?). As such, it can help define policy priorities and establish the sequencing of initiatives that would produce sustainable results in line with the specific migration trends in the country, and supports fundraising efforts, as the gap-analysis can help clarify complementary areas of action to reinforce or complement the state's capacity to improve migration governance.
