During an online event held on 8 November, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and PICUM (Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants) presented a study concerning the regularization of irregular migrants in the OSCE region.
In particular, OSCE recommends participating countries to:
• Strengthen and clarify the legal and regulatory framework, including by establishing rights-based regularisation mechanisms and by promoting family unity and integration
• Create an enabling environment and promote good practices, for instance through engagement with relevant civil society actors and stakeholders and preventing discrimination
• Monitor, innovate and respond to exceptional situations by adopting ad-hoc programs for exceptional circumstances and enhancing data collection.
