What is Universal Citizenship?

For the founding members of the Alliance Migrations, universal citizenship implies a minimum common base of fundamental rights. Each person, whatever their nationality, origin or place of residence, must be able to claim to participate in democratic life and in the construction of the society in which they live. In short, the right to be recognized as a citizen. The universal citizenship must grow and be strengthened in the meeting of the ideas which flourish in the four corners of the world.

This principle of universal citizenship is also opposed to the commonly shared conception of the "illegal" migrant. The Alliance Migrations relies on article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on the free movement of persons: "Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each State. (...) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.


What is unconditional reception?

Unconditional reception is the development and implementation of policies, mechanisms and/or initiatives aimed at welcoming all vulnerable people, regardless of their nationality, origin, gender, sexuality, or the regularity or duration of their residence in the country.

This implies a proactive policy of reception in the territories, which allows the creation of mechanisms that grant access to fundamental rights and a dignified settlement.

Unconditional reception is very often favored by a triptych of State, local authorities and functional associations. When the State is lacking, many examples show that solutions are found through collaboration between local authorities and civil society.


What is alternative governance of migration?

The alternative governance of migration is based on the sharing of practices experienced in the territories in terms of co-construction of public policies, promoting a more dignified reception of migrants, whatever their administrative status.

The co-construction of public policies means a close collaboration between local authorities, the State and civil society. Each member of this triptych has a role to play in the elaboration of public policies due to their complementary skills and strength of action as well as their expertise according to their role in the governance of migration, always with a view to a dignified and unconditional reception of people.
