BACKGROUND

 

The Caribbean Migrations Consultations (CMC) is a process born from the initiative of Caribbean governments and the meeting “Migration and Inclusion: a challenge for Caribbean Integration" in 2015 in Montego Bay, Jamaica. At the meeting, with the technical cooperation and assistance of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Caribbean governments recognized the importance of migration within the region and the need for regular consultations from which future conferences would be organized.

 

In this light, the Caribbean Migration Consultations are born from Caribbean governments expressing the desire to confront, in a regional manner, priority issues related to migration. IOM and UNHCR have provided administrative and financial assistance and technical support to execute meetings addressing such issues.
