The EU-funded Euromed Migration IV project has launched a call for traineeship for students and young professionals from the Euro-Mediterranean region, related to the Interactive Map on Migration (i.Map), a web-based information and knowledge platform which aims to enhance and facilitate information exchange and contribute to a more balanced narrative on migration.
As part of an important regional migration dialogue, students passionate about the world of migration will have the opportunity to complement their migration knowledge with this 3-month traineeship which will facilitate direct engagement with a diverse set of primary migration actors such as politicians, international organisations, civil society organisations, journalists, and local authorities.
This approach will help the selected trainees to strengthen their understanding of various migration topics: irregular migration, legal migration, migration and development, and international protection and asylum, as well as of the roles and responsibilities of different actors involved in migration and how they interact and jointly contribute to migration governance.
Moreover, the traineeship will expose selected candidates to content production and management of the i-Map information portal on migration. As such, the trainees will provide innovative contributions to fuelling the growth of the i-Map structured around research, data collection, data visualisation, and media engagement. The multi-thematic digital platform will also include information on migration flows and routes, the development of a media centre, and the management of a contact and partner database.
There will be several cycles of traineeship with the 1st one starting on 1 May 2017, and running for 3 months. The deadline for application to this call is 14 April 2017.
The main objective of Euromed Migration IV is to support EU Member States and the Southern Partner Countries (SPC) of the European Neighbourhood Instrument in establishing a comprehensive, constructive and operational dialogue and co-operation framework; a particular focus is put on reinforcing instruments and capacities to develop and implement evidence-based and coherent migration and international protection policies.
