After nearly two years of study, the Model International Mobility Convention (MIMC) represents a consensus among over 40 academics and policymakers in the fields of migration, human rights, national security, labor economics, and refugee law. It provides a holistic and rights-based approach to international mobility that integrates the various regimes that govern people on the move. The MIMC establishes the minimum rights afforded to all people who cross state borders – visitors, students, workers, residents, forced migrants, refugees, victims of trafficking, and family members – and defines the relationships to their communities of destination, origin, and transit.

Talk by Michael W. Doyle, University Professor of Columbia University, former Director of Columbia Global Policy Initiative and Adviser to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
