Ongoing Projects

Budapest Process

The Budapest Process is a consultative forum with over 50 governments and 10 international organisations aiming at developing comprehensive and sustainable systems for orderly migration. It is one of the longest-standing cooperation frameworks on migration for Europe and its eastern neighbours. During its more than 20 years of operation, the Budapest Process has developed from an information sharing tool between European countries in a pre-EU enlargement setting to a far-reaching European-Asian forum for improving migration management.

India-EU Cooperation and Dialogue on Migration and Mobility (India CAMM)

Objective: The India-EU Cooperation and Dialogue on Migration and Mobility Project aims at operationalizing EU support for better management of mobility and legal migration between the EU and India, as well as to prevent and address the challenges related to irregular migratory flows. It is expected that through the implementation of concrete cooperation in support of political processes like the HLDMM and the CAMM, the project will reinforce the continuity and sustainability of migration and mobility cooperation between the EU and India.

The project will adopt three strategic approaches: improved access to and utilization of quality information and data management to make informed policy decisions and formulations in both directions; promotion of knowledge transfer, capacity building, technical and expert support to ensure the concrete improvement of migration governance systems; and policy development to facilitate the implementation of comprehensive, coherent and feasible measures.
