ICMPD held a virtual senior expert roundtable to discuss means of addressing irregular migration along migration routes.
The meeting brought together senior experts from EU and ICMPD Member States, international organisations, EU institutions and other relevant bodies.
Participants zoomed in on ways that partnerships and policies can better address irregular migration by looking along entire migration routes and considering the perspectives of countries of origin, transit and destination.
They also reflected on how these experiences shaped the European Commission’s current thinking around the New Pact on Migration and Asylum, in particular its proposed new approaches to the migration partnerships as well as asylum and return policies.
