Obituary for Ambassador William Lacy Swing

It is with great sadness that the migration community has to unexpectedly say the farewell to Ambassador Swing, former Director General of IOM. Many of us had the pleasure to meet and listen to him at International Metropolis Conferences over the years and to work with him to improve migration governance. We considered him a friend.

Metropolis International joins the larger community in taking a moment to honour his drive, leadership and compassion in this field, and to relay the International Steering Committee's condolences and support to his family and his colleagues at IOM.
