On 21 November 2016, the Khartoum Process, one of three ongoing migration dialogue processes between Africa and the EU, launched its formal website. It provides information on the history of the process, its governance and political frameworks, the key activities of the Dialogue, as well as news and upcoming events.

Launched in 2014, the Khartoum Process is a platform for political cooperation amongst the countries along the migration route between the Horn of Africa and Europe. Also known as the EU-Horn of Africa Migration Route Initiative, it aims to establish a continuous dialogue for enhanced cooperation on migration and mobility and to implement concrete projects to address human trafficking and the smuggling of migrants. A core goal is to give a new impetus to the regional collaboration between countries of origin, transit and destination. The Process is led by a Steering Committee comprised of five EU Member States (Italy, France, Germany, UK, Malta), five African partner countries (Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Sudan) as well as the European Commission and the African Union Commission.

The Khartoum Process is supported by the EU through its Pan-African Programme.
