Working with other Geneva based migration fora

The EU maintains regular contacts to the Global Migration Group and its members. It contributes to its symposia and experts' meetings and has cooperated with the GMG on the elaboration of the concept of an Extended Migration Profile.

The European Commission participates and contributes as observer to the IGC ("Intergovernmental consultations on migration, asylum and refugees"), a consultative, non-decision making forum for inter-governmental information exchange and policy debate related to international migration issues.

Other relevant Geneva based UN fora regularly address relevant migration policy aspects under their specific sectoral perspectives. This includes inter alia the Human Rights Council, UNHCR, WHO and ILO. The EU ensures a horizontal positioning coherent with the orientations of the Global Approach to Migration and Mobility.
