For a human-centred migration: Policy Paper08.09.2022

The third advocacy campaign coached by the Med Dialogue programme and aimed at “Humanising migration“, concluded with the formulation of a set of recommendations in the form of a policy paper.

The paper was produced by a Consortium composed of the Forum des Alternatives Maroc and the Amel Association from Lebanon, with the participation of the European Policy Center as a dialogue facilitator.

The paper collects a series of recommendations following a process of consultation and compilation of various analytical texts and positions of civil society actors and national and European institutions, as well as the organisation of four meetings in hybrid mode:

  • 17 June 2022 in Rabat, Morocco on the theme “Protecting the economic, social and cultural rights of migrants”,
  • 27 June 2022 in Beirut, Lebanon on the theme “Towards a human-centred approach to migration policies”,
  • 27 June 2022 in virtual format on “International responsibility for the protection of migrants: For the right to life”,
  • 29 June 2022 in Brussels, on the theme “Legal migration to the EU: Views from the Mediterranean”.

The recommendations focus on three axes:

  • What are the possibilities for promoting greater legal migration, and for moving safely from countries in the Mediterranean region to the EU?
  • How to develop a more equitable governance of migration, in line with local needs and development aspirations of the countries in the Mediterranean region?
  • What initiatives should be implemented to promote a humane and people-centred approach to migration?
