Cambridge Global Challenges


The launch of this project with UNHCR and IOM reflects the commitment of the European Union and Argentina to work together in the global governance of migration flows, in line with their promotion within the UN of the negotiation of a “Global Compact on Migration”.

Implemented by IOM and UNHCR, it seeks to reinforce the institutional capacities of the Argentine State in the management of the mechanisms for reception and integration of the beneficiaries of Argentina’s Syria Programme. It comprises, amongst others, activities of empowerment of the actors involved, language teaching and the development of applications to share information and empowerment of women and girls.

Global forced displacement is at an unprecedented level, with 68,5 million people forcibly displaced as a result of persecution, conflict, generalised violence, or human rights violations. Among them are almost 25.4 million refugees. The conflict in Syria only has created some 6.3 million refugees on top of the 6.2 million internally displaced persons.
