Migration is not about numbers, it is about people.Behind the numbers there are men, women, children, all with their own unique feelings, experiences, fears, hopes, and stories; each with their dignity and their right to strive for a better life. As the way we deal with migration will affect their right to move and lead a decent life, and the stability and cohesion of the receiving communities,progressive migration and integration policies must be grounded in humanity and solidarityand imply theutter rejection of measures, initiatives and practices that can harm human dignity.
Even though migration is reaching unprecedented levels in the present global context, we must recognise thatthis is not an emergency: migration is a structural and ordinary feature of our contemporary world,and short-term, simplistic and narrow policy responses will not only not “solve the problem”, but will likely make the consequences of mismanagement more severe. As the reasons for migration are rooted in the uneven development and distribution of wealth, in the conflicts and persecutions, and in the ravages of nature and climate change,it is only at the global level that migration can be effectively governed and it is the current global architecture that needs to be changed.
Given these assumptions, the FEPS Global Migration Group offers the following suggestions as a frame of reference for progressive forces all over the world and to support the implementation of theGlobal Compact for Migration,to be adopted in Marrakesh on 10th and 11th December 2018.
