International Migration Law

 

Summary

Dates: 10-12 June 2009
Venue: UN Headquarters New York, Conference Room D

Orderly and humane management of migration is recognized today as a prerequisite for migration to be beneficial to both host and origin societies and migrants. In pursuing this objective, States of destination and origin have the responsibility to protect the human rights of migrants and nationals, and to take into consideration the interests of both, within the parameters set by international principles, standards and norms (globally referred to as International Migration Law or “IML”).
