On 9 November 2018 Julia Planitzer, Senior Researcher at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights (BIM), has been elected as new Member of the Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings ("GRETA"), upon nomination by Austria. The mandate will start in January 2019 and will last for four years.

The Austrian withdrawal from the UN Migration Compact has triggered a wide public debate. In this context, Manfred Nowak and Adel-Naim Reyhani from the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights answered questions on the meaning and purpose of this document as well as its legal classification.

The experts do not see a basis for the argument that national autonomy regarding migration policies would be restricted by the Compact.
