Information measures and capacity building on asylum, legal and irregular migration in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Western Balkans (IKAM)
The overall aim of this information and awareness-raising campaign is to convey objective information about the dangers and consequences of irregular migration as well as communicate about options for legal migration and labour migration in order to counteract misinformation.
The project also aims to inform potential migrants, vulnerable communities and people in transit about the legal, social and economic realities of life in Europe, as well as the possibility of voluntary return. Ultimately, the campaign aims to enable people to make informed decisions about migration and to reduce irregular migration and onward migration. In addition, the project intends to support migrants in transit countries in order to avoid further vulnerability to human trafficking and smuggling by providing them with adequate information. The project also aims to build the capacity of local authorities in the target regions to raise awareness of migration and run related information campaigns.
This project is funded by the European Union and Austria.
