Improving the governance of migration and mobility within Africa and between Africa and the EU and enhancing the protection of migrants’ rights.

The Africa-EU Migration and Mobility Dialogue (MMD) is a framework comprising three migration dialogues: the Rabat Process, the Khartoum Process and the Continental Dialogue. This project is supported by the EU under the Annual Action Programme 2014 of the DCI Pan-African Programme. It is co-financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (EUR 1 million) and implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD).

The overall objective is to maximise the development potential of migration and mobility within Africa and between Africa and the EU within the context of the JAES. The specific objective is to improve the governance of migration and mobility within Africa and between Africa and the EU and enhance the protection of migrants’ rights. The project is implemented on the basis of three interrelated components: 1) Africa-EU dialogue and cooperation on migration and mobility; 2) Continental management of migration and mobility; 3) Support to African diaspora as development actors.

The project is implemented on the basis of three interrelated components:

  • Support to the Africa-EU dialogue and cooperation on migration and mobility which entails: a. the Continental Dialogue b. the Rabat Process c. the Khartoum Process, as well as Valletta Summit follow up;
  • The establishment of a demand-driven and needs-based facility to enhance inter and intracontinental cooperation on migration and mobility, which will support institutional capacity development at the level of the AUC. It will also assist RECs in the development, monitoring and implementation of pan-African migration and mobility frameworks, and the implementation of initiatives addressing specific issues and/or geographical areas of the intercontinental dialogue agenda;
  • Support to the African Diaspora as development actors by consolidating the Africa-EU Development platform to become an autonomous entity, and building the capacities of the network of African diaspora organisations in Europe.
