Regional Inter-State Consultation Mechanisms on Migration

Approaches, Recent Activities and Implications for Global Governance of Migration

image of Regional Inter-State Consultation Mechanisms on Migration

This study reviews 25 interstate consultative mechanisms on migration: 18 RCPs and seven others, here termed interregional forums on migration (IRF) that appear to depart from the classic RCP model in some meaningful way. Each case review includes background on the origin and development of the mechanism, a brief discussion of the evolution of the agenda, identification of any linkages with multilateral agreements, and a note on the placement of the mechanism within the taxonomy of mechanisms suggested by the author. The study concludes with implications for harmonized governance of migration.

Approach to definitions and taxonomy

While the core definition of RCPs (“… restricted information-sharing and discussion forums for States with an interest in promoting cooperation in the field of migration”) is clear, interpretation of the further-noted characteristics detailed in this definition can vary among parties, and the distinctions can be important.
