Louise Arbour: Negative attitude towards migration 'completely self-defeating'
Date created :
Louise Arbour, the UN Special Representative for International Migration, sits down with FRANCE 24 to discuss the Global Compact on Migration, a non-binding deal she hopes to reach by the end of the year with UN member states. She faces resistance from the Trump administration on the issue. Arbour admits a deal will take "political courage" but says a negative attitude towards migration, as seen in many Western countries, is "completely self-defeating" in the short to medium term.
