Deadline Extended: Contribute to efforts of the UN Network on Migration's thematic working group 3 on regular pathways
The United Nations Network on Migration was established to ensure effective, timely and coordinated system-wide support to States in their implementation, follow up and review of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.
Thematic Working Group 3 on Pathways for Admission and Stay to Address and Reduce Vulnerabilities Faced by Migrants is one of six thematic working groups established under the Network, tasked with “Strengthening States’ capacities to expand regular migration pathways, including admission and stay, and to address and reduce vulnerabilities faced by migrants”. The Working Group is comprised of representatives of UN agencies, civil society organizations and technical experts from across the world, and is co-convened by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, ACT Alliance and the Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network.
In order to support this work, the Network would be most grateful to receive relevant information from you via the attached questionnaire, which seeks to gauge the extent to which safe and regular pathways are currently available and accessible to migrants in situations of vulnerability, including in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Information provided in response to this questionnaire will be used by the Network to develop targeted guidance and tools, and to pilot this guidance, inter alia through the facilitation of peer-to-peer exchanges with Member States, UN partners, and other stakeholders, and will not be made public.
Additional details may be found here, and a link to the questionnaire may be found here. Please send all information by 11 January 2021 to email@example.com . Due to a limited capacity for translation, UN Network on Migration kindly requests that your submissions be in English.

The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) is conducting an important new study on immigrants’ access to programs, benefits and services offered by New York City and non-profit service providers. The goal of the study is to help the New York City government and service providers better serve immigrant New Yorkers. Their research team is seeking immigrant New Yorkers to participate in a 1-hour phone or video interview for this study. Participation will be confidential and will help researchers and government officials understand the challenges faced by immigrants in New York City.
