Summary/Abstract: This article explores a recent attempt to bridge the gap between migration governance and migration policy by means of a hoped-for ‘universal’ system of international cooperation – the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration (hereinafter GCM or Global Compact). In particular, this contribution examines the reasons that in December 2018 led both the Italian Parliament and Government to refrain from the Global Compact, which Italy first had promoted as a way to revitalise the European Union’s solidarity and coordination, while lessening the uneven burden of migratory inflows into the country.
