This report proposes that the Commonwealth should “re-connect” over the issue of migration, by implementing four key recommendations: 1) Build migration management capacity in Commonwealth member states and institutions, by training migration officials and improving migration data; 2) Streamline migration policies by simplifying regulations around mobility, mitigating brain drain, promoting brain circulation, and managing low-skilled labour migration; 3) Help migrants to share their successes with their origin and destination communities by facilitating remittances and engaging diasporas; and 4) Enhance international cooperation over migration by cooperating to protect migrants’ rights, establishing a Commonwealth Consultative Process on migration, and boosting Commonwealth participation in wider global migration governance forums.
