Migration Governance Framework (MiGOF)

Governance of Migration

In November 2015, IOM Member States endorsed the Migration Governance Framework (MiGOF), through Council Resolution 1310, which remains the only internationally agreed definition of SDG target 10.7 on implementing well managed migration policies. This tool does not entail any new obligations for Member States, but builds on existing international instruments, norms and research to ensure that migration is governed in an integrated and holistic way. IOM is using MiGOF to advise governments on both policy and programmatic priorities that lead to the development of targeted, impactful and strategic programmes.

The MiGof is comprised of three principles and three objectives:

Principle 1: Good migration governance would require adherence to international standards and the fulfilment of migrants' rights
Principle 2: Migration and related policies are best formulated using evidence and whole of government approaches
Principle 3: Good migration governance relies on strong partnerships.

Objective 1: Good migration governance and related policy should seek to advance the socioeconomic well-being of migrants and society
Objective 2: Good migration governance is based on effective responses to the mobility dimensions of crises
Objective 3: Migration should take place in a safe, orderly and dignified manner.
