Capacity Building

Through several parallel initiatives, the capacity building component serves to implement recommendations of the consultations, the MICIC Guidelines and the research and, ultimately, strengthen the protection of migrants in countries affected by crises. It contributes to better crisis preparedness, emergency response and post-crisis action of governments and other relevant actors. 



Consular Crisis Management

This Initiative includes the organisation of introductory seminars, pre-departure/mid-service trainings and training of trainers to enhance capabilities of foreign posts to act as first responders and address specific needs of migrants in countries in crisis.
