Towards Sustainable and Mutually-Beneficial Partnerships with the EU: Protecting Those in Need and Support to Host Countries
The AUB Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) in collaboration with EuroMeSCo organized a survey dissemination event titled “Towards Sustainable and Mutually-Beneficial Partnerships with the EU: Protecting Those in Need and Support to Host Countries”. This event aims to present the EMM5-EuroMeSCo Euromed Survey Results and discuss an analytical article based on the survey results.
This webinar is part of the new collaboration between IFI and EuroMeSCo. It was open to the public via zoom on Tuesday, May 31, 2022.
The European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) within the framework of the project “EuroMeSCo Connecting the dots” and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) within the project “EuroMed Migration 5”, carried out this survey to reflect on migration partnerships between the EU and Southern Mediterranean countries in line with the EU’s Joint Communication on a Renewed Partnership with the Southern Neighborhood and the New Pact on Migration and Asylum. It reflects the priorities and viewpoints of the nine European Neighborhood Instrument Southern Partner Countries (ENI SPCs) thereby charting a path for an evidence-driven approach to partnership negotiations. The survey targeted respondents from Southern Mediterranean Countries, including policymakers, experts, and civil society representatives.
The results of the survey contain analytical articles that also echo some specific results of the Survey, in the case of Lebanon there is a particular analysis written by the ILO Regional Office for the Arab States focused on partnerships in the context of forced displacement and support to host countries.
