Objective: This project seeks to facilitate the transition from the existing dialogue regarding the migration needs and priorities of the Silk Routes countries to one that delivers tangible outputs. It focuses on facilitating pilot projects on capacity building actions, aiming at supporting the Afghan, Iraqi and Pakistani administration in developing a sustainable national migration management system.
Summary: Following the extension to the Silk Routes Region in 2010, the Budapest Process has moved further to cover an increasing geographic and thematic scope, incorporating the full range of migration management issues. Since then, the Silk Routes project has helped identify the basic needs for capacity building in the diverse areas of migration management through visits to the Silk Routes countries, contributing to the preparations of the 5th Budapest Process Ministerial Conference as well.
At the 5th Budapest Process Ministerial Conference on 19 April 2013 in Istanbul, “A Silk Routes Partnership for Migration” was established and a framework for concrete, operational follow-up actions was adopted. Therefore preparing the grounds for the implementation of operational actions in the countries concerned through training and capacity building is crucial.
Now, in order to sustain the positive momentum gained from the Istanbul Ministerial Declaration on “A Silk Routes Partnership for Migration”, the United Kingdom has initiated the first follow up project “Bridging Actions for Migration Management in the Silk Routes Region”. It focuses on initiating pilot projects on capacity building actions in migration management by building upon the priority assessment of the Silk Routes I project. Furthermore it aims at laying the groundwork for a more comprehensive and regional migration management project starting in 2014, ensuring the sustainability of these pilot projects.
