The PIDC provides advice and assistance to Members in the development of effective and appropriate immigration legislation. The following materials are intended to act as an easy to access resource for Members developing new immigration legislation.
To support Members in the development of immigration legislation the PIDC has created a two-part framework. Part A of the framework looks at the process for developing legislation, Members' experiences and lessons learned. Part B of the framework identifies key parts and provisions for Members to consider when developing new immigration legislation. Part B was updated in 2016/ 2017 and is only available to PIDC Members .
Part A: Issues and approaches to developing policy and legislation (Sept 2010)
Part B: Key parts and provisions (March 2011)
As a supplement to the above framework, the PIDC has compiled a list of international and regional instruments relevant to immigration practice and legislation. The most relevant provisions in each instrument are listed as well as the Members who are signatories.
