Project News: ICMPD provides support to Mauritius to elaborate Migration and Development Policy
Last week, the European Union and ICMPD launched a new action, to support the government of Mauritius in the elaboration of a National Migration and Development Policy and Action Plan which is implemented within the framework of the “MIgration EU eXpertise” (MIEUX) Initiative.
The launch event on 3rd February 2017 brought together the members of the Migration Steering Committee of Mauritius, MIEUX experts and representatives from the EU Delegation in Mauritius and ICMPD.
A five-day scoping mission in Mauritius entailed meetings with a series of national agencies in order to collect up-to-date information on the current state of play in the area of migration and mobility in Mauritius. The five days of meetings resulted in the identification of key strengths and weaknesses in the migration framework of Mauritius, as well as in the setting of key objectives for the future policy.
Going forward, through a total of seven activities, MIEUX experts will advise the Mauritian authorities on suitable strategies to develop a sustainable national migration framework that will allow maximising the benefits of migration processes through tools like circular migration agreements.
