In line with the Joint Communication on a Renewed Partnership with the Southern Neighbourhood and the New Deal on Migration and Asylum, the EU encourages more systematic efforts to coordinate actions with neighbouring countries. To strengthen this coordination, the EU envisages the development of Migration Partnerships, as tailor-made agreements incorporating the political priorities of EU partners and countries.
In this respect, the European Institute for the Mediterranean (IEMed), in the framework of the "EuroMeSCo connecting the dots" project, and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), in the framework of the "EuroMed Migration 5" project, conducted this survey to reflect on the improvement of migration partnerships between the EU and the southern Mediterranean countries.
The survey targeted respondents from southern Mediterranean countries, including policy makers, experts and civil society representatives, and its results should reflect the priorities and views in the respective national contexts of southern Mediterranean countries, thus paving the way for an evidence-based approach to negotiating partnerships.
The Fondazione Mediterraneo is a founding member of the EuroMeSCo network and supports and disseminates its main activities.
