The Budapest Process is an inter-regional dialogue on migration stretching from Europe to the Silk Routes region (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq and Pakistan) also covering Europe's Eastern neighbours, the Western Balkans and Central Asia.

Founded in 1993 the Budapest Process is Europe's leading and longest-standing dialogue on migration. We have built up a far-reaching network among participating and observer states as well as a wide thematic coverage. The Budapest Process also offers practical support to countries within the Silk Routes Project by offering a platform for learning and training between peers as well as for facilitating concrete project development and cooperation.

The unique value of the Budapest Process is that we bridge the gap between theory and practice. Today we provide a platform for dialogue and operational cooperation for 55 governments as well as 17 regional and international organisations.
