UN member states have approved the global migrationspakt

The global framework for migration was accepted on Monday morning, at the beginning of a two-day long conference in the moroccan Marrakech.

the Adoption was made by acclamation, that is, in the form of mötesdeltagarnas yes - or nejrop, and afterwards erupted in happy applause, " says a UN delegate for the DN.

all UN member states except the united states about the document that is the basis for Marrakechmötet. Immediately afterwards, however, began a series of countries jump of the framework and the meeting, many in Eastern europe but also countries such as Australia, Italy and Austria.

It is the latest country to jump of the meeting, which took place at the last moment, is Chile. The chilean right-wing government under president Sebastian Piñera sounded to announce that it will not participate in the conference.

" Our position is clear. We have said that migration is not a human right. Individual countries have the right to determine the inträdesvillkoren for foreign citizens", said Rodrigo Ubilla, undersecretary of the chilean ministry of the interior, to the newspaper El Mercurio.

is not legally binding, is the decision likely to be largely about domestic politics. Chile has in recent years received large amounts of immigrants from other Latin american countries, and one of president piñera's campaign promises was tightened migration policy.

The opposition Progressive party is calling the government's actions ”disgraceful and authoritarian”, and a communist member of parliament and lawyer , Hugo Gutiérrez, says on Twitter that Chile is now on track to do the same ultrahögergir as the USA's Trump and Brazil Bolsonaro.

Chile's decision means that there are now ten countries who placed themselves outside the framework of migration. A further six are considering doing so, including Israel. the

the large amount of misinformation about the agreement that has been disseminated in social media. In many parts of the world, including in Sweden, have critical voices been raised about the pact, which some fear will limit the sovereignty of countries in the issue of migration. However, the document is therefore not legally binding.

– All this desinformationen about what the pact means, and what the text actually states, is surprising, " says Louise Arbour, the UN's special representative for international migration, to the AFP.

the Next step is now that the framework to be formally adopted in the form of a resolution in the UN general assembly on 19 december.
