Organization: International Organization for Migration
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 27 Jul 2018

Position Title : Consultant (Assessing Inter-State Consultation Mechanisms on Migration)

Duty Station : Geneva, Switzerland

Classification : Consultant, Grade OTHE

Type of Appointment : Consultant, Five months

Estimated Start Date : As soon as possible

Closing Date : 27 July 2018

Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading

UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and

non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

Context:

Nature of the consultancy:

Assessing the continued relevance and contribution of inter-State consultation mechanisms on migration (ISCMs) to migration governance at all levels (national, regional and international) and synergies among ISCMs and with other regional actors.

Background:

Migration governance includes legislation, policies, practices, common principles and approaches for facilitating orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people. While States are the primary actors in national governance, international partnerships and cooperation on migration are vital to migration governance beyond national borders.

ISCMs are State-led, ongoing information-sharing and policy dialogues at the regional, inter-regional or global level for States with an interest in promoting cooperation in the field of migration. Among ISCMs, those at the regional level are referred to as regional consultative processes on migration (RCPs), those connecting two or more regions interregional forums on migration (IRFs) and ISCMs at the global level global processes on migration.

ISCMs emerged in many regions from the mid-1990s onwards to address specific migration issues within identified regions and contexts. Over time, they have expanded in number and diversified geographically and in focus. While some remain informal and non-binding, some are officially associated with established institutions. Both the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants (paragraph 54) and the Global compact for migration Modalities Resolution (paragraph 22) refer to ISCMs as valid existing mechanisms contributing to the preparatory process and negotiations towards the global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration. ISCMs are referenced in the global compact for migration zero draft as “platforms to exchange experiences on the implementation of the Global Compact, share good practices on policies and cooperation, promote innovative approaches, and foster multi-stakeholder partnerships around specific policy issues.”

The increasing recognition of the importance of concerted approaches to migration calls for a review of ISCMs’ practices and partnership models and a reassessment of their role in current migration governance setting.

Objective:

To assess inter-State consultation mechanisms on migration and prepare its analytical report. The assessment will seek to meet the following aspects:

(A) Thematic focus and contribution to migration governance.

• provide an updated overview of the ISCMs’ work; where possible, compare developments of individual ISCMs with earlier assessments (e.g., 2010, 2013) .

• Assess ISCM contribution to migration governance at (i) the national level for those States which are members of ISCMs, (ii) regional level; (iii) interregional level and (iv) global level.

• Develop case studies highlighting ISCM’s contributions to regional / interregional policies on free movement (including labour mobility schemes, skills recognition and equal treatment), assisted voluntary return and sustainable reintegration, etc.

• Outline regional governance elements and possible indicators to measure ISCM contribution to migration governance.

• Articulate ISCMs’ possible role in the global compact for migration implementation and follow-up; ISCMs’ comparative advantages vis-à-vis other regional actors, including the UN Regional Commissions.

(B) Structures

• Analyse ISCM structures, such as effective membership, observership, administration

(including knowledge management) and operating modalities.

• Analyse ISCM funding modalities, including their cost-effectiveness and sustainability. (C) Synergies and partnerships:

• Identify ISCMs’ effective practices and partnership models (by theme, type and region).

• Assess synergies among ISCMs.

• Assess synergies with other regional actors (e.g. regional or multi-stakeholder organizations, UN Regional Commission, African Union regional economic communities).

The assessment will include: desktop review of existing literature and reports ; data collection and analysis; interviews; survey among ISCM Chairs and Secretariats. An analytical report cataloguing each ISCM and highlighting effective practices and partnership models will reflect the findings of the assessment. The report should offer a comprehensive summary of the diverse approaches among ISCMs on how they operate administratively and thematically, the challenges identified and recommendations arising from interviews and surveys. The assessment report will have a shorter, external version. An IOM Inter-departmental review panel on the Report will oversee the production.

Target:

IOM, ISCMs, Governments, also intergovernmental organizations, academia, migration practitioners, and interested public.
