Working Group on Migration conducts an online consultation on African NHRIs participation in the regional review conference on GCM

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH), in its capacity as President of the Working Group on Migration of the Network of African National Human Rights Institutions (NANHRI), held an online regional consultation on African National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) actions on migration on 29 April 2021.

NANHRI Working Group on Migration Representatives from Morocco, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Niger and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Representative of the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs on behalf of the African Migration Observatory and Representative of the United Nations Network on Migration in Africa took part in this event.

This online consultation is part of the implementation of the NANHRI Working Group Action Plan, namely the axis related to the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) and the Cairo Declaration adopted at the 12th Biennial Conference of the NANHRI held in Egypt, on 5 - 6 November 2019 on “the GCM: African NHRIs’ common vision, opportunities and challenges in its implementation”.

At this event, the CNDH's proposal to conduct a consultation on African NHRIs’ participation in the next Regional Review Conference of the GCM in Africa was adopted. The Regional Review is scheduled for July 2021 in Morocco.

The online consultation will provide NHRIs with the opportunity to take stock on the progress made in the implementation of the 23 objectives of the GCM, identify the main challenges, and explore regional priorities and potential areas for regional cooperation, but above all, facilitate drafting key findings and recommendations to be used as inputs for the Report on Migration in the Africa Region.

Ms. Amina Bouayach, CNDH Chairperson, Ms. Thoko Ruzvidzo, UNECA Director (on behalf of UN Network in Africa), and Ms. Sihame Mourabit, Chief of Human Rights division, Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs participated in this event.

This regional consultation was also an opportunity to examine opportunities for cooperation with the African Observatory on Migration and share NHRIs experiences related to the implementation of new and best practices (legal and institutional practices related to migration).
