EU and Argentina commits on working together on Migration and Forced Displacement

last modified Jul 02, 2018 10:12 PM
The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Worship of Argentina, Jorge Faurie along with the Head of the EU Delegation in Argentina, Aude Maio-Coliche launched a project to support Argentina’s refugee reception and integration policy. The Project will provide a grant of € 2 million and is funded by the EU’s Partnership Instrument.

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.
