New project: Developing Iraqi Government knowledge and expertise in migration governance

Vienna, Austria and Baghdad, Iraq: We are delighted to be working with the Iraqi government on a 12 month project to educate and enhance the institutional capacities of key ministries in Iraq on migration governance. This activity will also complement existing work in Iraq on sound migration policy development, and tie in with our diaspora policy and integrated border management activities.

This project is funded by the Swiss State Secretariat for Migration (SEM).

The long term goal of fostering deeper and wider European engagement with Iraqi decision makers, through Swiss support, will require the development of the knowledge base and technical expertise of key stakeholders within the Iraqi government sector.
