BORDERPOL supports the GCM because under Article 15 it reaffirms the sovereign right of States to determine their national migration policy and their prerogative to govern migration within their jurisdiction.

There is an overwhelming need to discuss openly and transparently the issue of global migration and both the positive and negative issues associated with it.

Elements of the GCM will be part of the discussions that will take place at the 7th BORDERPOL Global Forum set for the spring of 2019.
