image of The Role of Regional Consultative Process in Managing International Migration

The past ten years have seen an increase in the number of regional consultative processes focusing on migration. These non-binding fora bring representatives of states, civil society, and international organizations together at the regional level to discuss migration-related issues in a cooperative manner. This paper provides a comprehensive overview of regional consultative processes. It examines eleven regional processes and investigates the development and achievements of four of them in depth.

Conclusion and recommendations

Regional consultative processes are the regional response to a world of increasingly complex and diverse migration flows with more and more states involved. Multilateral cooperation, rather than unilateral action or bilateral agreements, is necessary in this complex migration system. Regional consultative processes offer a forum in which to discuss these issues in a cooperative dialogue on migration. Regional consultative processes are informal, provide for openness and increase efficiency.
