Beyond Migrants and Refugees
After almost 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.
