MIEUX: Conference 'Advancing Migration Cooperation through Demand-Driven Capacity Building: MIEUX’s Peer-to-Peer Approach'
Start:22 September
Location:Brussels, Belgium

This conference 'Advancing Migration Cooperation through Demand-Driven Capacity Building: MIEUX's Peer-to-Peer Approach' is organised by ICMPD's MIEUX initiative.

As an innovative, pioneering, demand-driven, global migration capacity building facility aimed at enhancing the technical expertise of partner country authorities, as well as regional organisations, MIEUX seeks to better address all areas of migration through the mobilisation of peer-to-peer, tailor-made expertise from EU Member State administrations and/or non-EU Member States, when relevant, and a collaborative result-oriented follow-up.

In light of 2015 being the European Year for Development, and the month of September dedicated to Demography and Migration, ICMPD and the European Commission (DG DEVCO) will host a one-day conference to share MIEUX’s efforts, experiences and lessons learnt in delivering peer-to-peer, demand-driven migration expertise.

The event will endeavour to gather stakeholders from varying backgrounds to reflect upon our shared experiences and on the implication of MIEUX’s peer-to-peer approach towards facilitating delivery of the requested support to partner countries in an effort to develop their capacities in migration management. Building upon six years of achievements and lessons learnt at national and regional levels, we will also look at future prospects.
