EUROMED Migration III
Euro Mediterranean Migration III (EUROMED Migration III)
ICMPD is the consortium leader in charge of the implementation of the EU-funded EUROMED Migration III Project. The project, which runs from January 2012–December 2014, has the following consortium partners: the European-Mediterranean University (EMUNI), the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITC-ILO), the International and Ibero-American Foundation of Administration and Public Policies (FIIAPP) and the French Office for Immigration and Integration (OFII). The project targets ENPI South partner countries' relevant national institutions, particularly Ministries of Employment, Ministries of Interior and General Directorates for National Security, Planning authorities, Statistical Institutes and Ministries of Foreign Affairs.
The overall objective of EUROMED Migration III is to foster cooperation on migratory issues between the ENPI South partner countries and EU countries, as well as among ENPI South partner countries themselves. In addition, it assists partner countries in their efforts to govern international migration. The specific objectives of the project are:
- promote the establishment of networks and exchanges between labour administrations, employment agencies, employer organisations, trade unions and higher education institutions to facilitate legal migration channels and workers’ mobility
- promote synergies between migration and development in ENPI South countries
- support the prevention of irregular migration, the enhancement of border management capacity and the improvement of reception of and assistance to vulnerable groups, such as unaccompanied minors.
