    Additional Information: The Hague Process on Refugees and Migration (THP) is an independent, not-for-profit organization with a global network of over 4,000 individuals, public and civil society organisations and institutions that brings together stakeholders to seek policy solutions to migration and refugee challenges. THP attained formal recognition in 2002 from Kofi Annan and the United Nations General Assembly upon their endorsement of the ‘Declaration of The Hague on the Future of Refugee and Migration Policy’ THP believes that migrants and refugees are entitled to have their human rights protected and promoted as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is from a human rights based approach that THP sets about its work in positively positioning people on the move. Central to THP’s work is the belief that despite the challenges posed by people on the move, on balance and when properly managed, migration can be beneficial for sending countries, receiving countries as well as for migrants themselves.
