Islamabad, June 2022. Institutions and organisations tend to appoint as trainers individuals whose technical expertise in a particular field is well established and recognised. The assumption is that if somebody is an expert in a certain subject, they should also be capable of providing training on this topic by applying adult learning methodologies.

Punjab, June 2022. The Migrant Resource Centres (MRCs) in Pakistan, together with local partners and stakeholders are organising a series of community outreach interventions from June – December 2022, in the districts of Gujranwala, Sialkot, Gujrat, Faisalabad, Jhelum, Mandi Bahauddin of Punjab.

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.
