The Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs of the European Parliament in association with the Committee of Foreign Affairs organise an inter-parliamentary meeting with Members of National Parliaments under the title "The UN Global Compacts on refugees and migrants and the role of Parliaments”. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, 27 February 2018, from 14h30 to 18h30, at the European Parliament premises in Brussels.

The inter-parliamentary committee meeting aims at bringing together Members of the National parliaments and the European Parliament to discuss about the content of the UN Global Compacts. Furthermore, the inter-parliamentary committee intends to strengthen the parliamentary dimension of the EU position and to support the work of the EEAS and of the Member States in the final phase of the process leading to the adoption of the Compacts. The outcome of the conference will also contribute to develop an EP perspective on the negotiations, which will materialize in a plenary resolution to be adopted in March.
The UN agencies, the co-facilitators, the EEAS, the European Commission, the Council Presidency and different stakeholders from the civil society will participate in the discussions.
