EU-IOM joint initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration

EU-IOM joint initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration

One year after launching the EU-IOM joint initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration to support the efforts of partner countries in Africa to strengthen migration management and to respond to the urgent protection needs and unacceptable loss of life of migrants along the Central Mediterranean migration routes, the EU and IOM are taking stock of significant results already achieved in rescuing migrants, providing protection and assistance and offering alternatives to irregular migrations.

The conference will present the movie Issalam Taret: Any News from the Road?, before introducing the results of the initiative one year on.
