Call for Targeted City Actions - MC2CM

Migration is a defining feature of urbanisation. Cities are places where people come together to live, work and find opportunities. It is also in the city where the reality of social and economic accommodation of newcomers and their interaction with host communities takes place.

In this context, the Mediterranean City-to-City Migration project (MC2CM) contributes to improved rights-based migration governance in cities. Through its three components: Dialogue, Knowledge and Action, MC2CM anchors migration governance to a process of urban planning addressing the objectives as set out in the MC2CM policy recommendations: Urban Challenges and Opportunities for the Mediterranean Region. MC2CM is in its second phase of implementation which began on 1 July 2018 and will run until 31 March 2021.
