29 June 2017 - The sub-regional consultative event on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) in the Western Balkans, held in Sarajevo on 29 June 2017, built up on a series of six national informational events that presented the respective Global Compacts for Migration and for Refugees. The national events were facilitated by IOM and UNHCR, in close cooperation with the Governments in the region and other relevant stakeholders. Through these events, both Compacts were introduced to national stakeholders including Governments, civil society, academia, private sector and the international community to ensure that all stakeholders are aware of the two Compacts’ global processes. The sub-regional event for the Western Balkans was an opportunity to strengthen the dialogue and consultative process in this sub-region to facilitate the identification of key messages that the countries could bring to the negotiations on the Global Compact in New York.
