BUDAPEST PROCESS SECRETARIAT - INTERNATIONAL CENTRE FOR MIGRATION POLICY DEVELOPMENT

Iraq, 19-22 September 2015: This second four-day training session held on 19–22 September within the Silk Routes Partnership Project, continues to lay important ground work for developing a comprehensive migration policy and data management framework in Iraq. Iraqi authorities worked jointly on identifying priorities in the field of migration management and missing policy tools with view to the current migration movements within the country and the existing legal framework.

This process proves especially challenging at the moment, considering that the Iraqi administration is currently fully engaged in helping and supporting the over three million internally displaced in Iraq.
