Related Term: Global Approach to Migration and Mobility, Strategic Committee on Immigration Frontiers and Asylum

Note:
1. The HLWG was set up in December 1998 to prepare cross-pillar Action Plans for the countries of origin and transit of asylum seekers and migrants.
2. The HLWG's focus is on external relations with third countries, particularly within the context of the Global Approach to Migration and Mobility. Its objective is to strengthen the external dimension of the EU’s asylum and migration policies based on dialogue, cooperation and partnership with countries of origin and transit in the areas of legal migration, irregular migration, migration and development. The Group also prepares conclusions and recommendations on asylum and migration to be adopted by the Council. They carry out an assessment of the political, economic and human rights situation in countries of origin and provide a joint analysis of the causes and consequences of migration.
