Euromed Survey 2021 Descriptive Results
- Euromed Survey 2021
The European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) within the framework of the project “EuroMeSCo Connecting the dots” and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) within the project “EuroMed Migration 5”, launched the survey “Towards sustainable and mutually beneficial migration partnerships in the Southern Mediterranean”, an exercise which aimed to reflect on improving migration partnerships between the EU and the Southern Mediterranean countries.
In line with the Joint Communication on a Renewed Partnership with the Southern Neighbourhood and the New Pact on Migration and Asylum, the EU is encouraging more systematic efforts in coordinating action with neighbouring countries. To strengthen this coordination, it envisages the development of migration partnerships, as tailor-made agreements encapsulating the policy priorities of both partners and EU countries.
This survey aims to reflect priorities and viewpoints in the respective national contexts of the South Mediterranean countries, thereby charting a path for an evidence-driven approach to partnership negotiations. It targeted respondents from Southern Mediterranean Countries, including policymakers, experts, and civil society representatives.
