“Migration is a global phenomenon requiring a joint and multilateral approach,” said Albrecht Boeselager, Grand Chancellor of the Order of Malta, from Marrakech in Morocco during the conference to approve the Global Compact, an agreement prepared under the auspices of the United Nations that establishes the guidelines for global migration management politics and strategies. The agreement comprises 23 objectives, developed over two years of negotiation to arrive at a joint document, to which the Order of Malta has contributed from the start through its diplomatic mission to the United Nations in New York.
