Webinar: Migration Management in the Greater Horn of Africa

This webinar explores the current migration management programs in the Horn of Africa through the lens of various actors such as local populations, civil society, local and national governments, and international organizations. Discussions include topics such safe vs unsafe migration, the role of local actors and stakeholders, security concerns in migration governance, and the future of migration management, particularly in the face of diminishing financial support.

Improved migration management is one of the strategic objectives of the EUTF and echoes the call in the SDGs (10.7) for the implementation of planned and well-managed migration policies. However, there is much debate about its meaning and how it relates to development. This webinar examines the foundations of the idea: who uses it in which ways, its different purposes and forms of implementation, and the multiple stakeholders involved in it (including international governmental organizations, national and local governments, border security officials, businesses and civil society).
