International Migration Policy Report : Responsibility Sharing for Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants in Need of Protection

The 2017 International Migration Policy Report is the first in an expected series of annual reports
on international migration policy and refugee protection by the global network of think tanks
or study centers founded by the Congregation of the Missionaries of St. Charles – Scalabrinians.
These institutions are members of the Scalabrini International Migration Network (SIMN). The
Scalabrini migration study centers consist of the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS)
in the United States, the Scalabrini Migration Center (SMC) in the Philippines, the Scalabrini
Institute for Human Mobility in Africa (SIHMA) in South Africa, the Centro de Estudios Migratorios
Latinoamericanos (CEMLA) in Argentina, the Centro de Estudios Migratorios (CEM) in Brazil, the
Centre d’Information et d’Études sur les Migrations Internationales (CIEMI) in France, and the
Centro Studi Emigrazione Roma (CSER) in Italy. The purpose of these reports will be to focus on
pressing global migration and refugee protection challenges in all parts of the world and to offer
policy suggestions to address them.
The inaugural issue will focus on global responsibility sharing for large movements of refugees
and migrants, a timely issue given the recent adoption of the New York Declaration on the
Large Movement of Refugees and Migrants at the United Nations. This report also considers
some of the issues which should be addressed during the deliberations on the Global Compact
on Responsibility Sharing for Refugees and the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly, and Regular
Migration.
