“Connecting, communicating and networking with Diasporas” was the theme of the first conference of the EU-funded Euromed Migration IV, which will run from 2016 to 2019.

The event, held from 4 to 6 May in Dublin, Ireland, gathered participants from 14 EU countries, 7 Southern Partner Countries and Turkey as an observer. The conference gave participants the opportunity to learn about case studies and experiences in diaspora engagement from Ireland, Denmark, Morocco, Lithuania and others and to discuss their relevance for the Mediterranean. The project team presented the draft work programme of Euromed Migration IV to start engaging all National Focal Points in the activities foreseen for the next three years.

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.
