New project: Awareness raising and information campaigns on the risks of irregular migration in Pakistan

Islamabad, Pakistan: The overall objective of this new project is to sensitise and empower potential migrants to make informed decisions about migration, particularly irregular migration, and in turn contribute to reducing irregular migration towards European and other destination countries.

At the same time, the project will aim to build sustainable networks and platforms among different groups of stakeholders to enhance their capacity in raising awareness, providing balanced information and promoting legal pathways. It will increase the understanding of key influencers of potential migrants about the dangerous consequences of irregular migration and the potential benefits of regular pathways. The action will contribute to the knowledge base on effective awareness raising campaigns on the dangers of irregular migration within Pakistan and beyond.

This two-year project is funded by the European Union, as well as Austria and Bulgaria.
