Nearly six years after the adoption of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), IOM continues to play a vital role in addressing, safeguarding, and advancing the rights and well-being of migrants and communities across the globe.

As a convener and facilitator of dialogue among various stakeholders and partners, IOM has been leading the way in bringing together governments, UN agencies and International Organizations, civil society organizations, academia, think tanks, and the private sector to share knowledge and discuss issues related to migrant protection and specialized programming, including counter-trafficking, addressing gender-based violence, child protection, return and reintegration.

The Migrant Protection Platform stands as one of the key instruments to facilitate such dialogue and knowledge sharing. The activities highlighted on the Platform's knowledge base underscore its alignment with the GCM objectives. Among the key activities and resources demonstrating this alignment are:                        

GCM Objective 1: Collect and utilize accurate and disaggregated data as a basis for evidence-based policies & International Classification Standard for Administrative Data on Trafficking in Persons (ICS-TIP) GCM Objective 3: Provide accurate and timely information at all stages of migration & Yenna, IOM’s learning platform on community engagement

Objective 21: Cooperate in facilitating safe and dignified return and readmission, as well as sustainable reintegration & Webinar on Mental Health and Psychosocial Perspectives on Migration, Return and Reintegration GCM Objective 10: Prevent, combat and eradicate trafficking in persons in the context of international migration & IOM Theory of Change

                                              GCM Objective 7: Address and reduce vulnerabilities in migration &IOM Course on Protection and Assistance for Migrants Vulnerable to Violence, Exploitation and Abuse
