Migration Advocacy and Partnerships

Pillar 3: Migration Advocacy and Partnerships promotes collaboration on migration initiatives through advocacy, partnerships and cross-border partnership building. In particular, the ACBC is pursuing the following:

  • Awareness raising on the role of an immigration and border management framework in the context of safe and dignified migration and ensuring  migrants’ rights, promotion of trade, security and cross-border political and economic cooperation
  • Promotion of multi-party cooperation between IOM Member States, Regional Economic Communities in Africa (i.e. the African Union, the East African Community), international actors (i.e. INTERPOL, Frontex), academia and IOM itself in an effort to standardize and share the best international practices in immigration and border management.
