In May 2022, the EUROMED Migration V project in cooperation with the Training Institute for Migration Capacity Partnerships organised its first Training for Young Migration Professionals in Malta: a 5-day course for students from Algeria, Morocco, Lebanon, Tunisia, Libya, and Palestine.
The rationale for the Training of Young Professionals is to provide graduates and early-career migration professionals with a comprehensive and coherent learning package conciliating theoretical and practical aspects of migration policy-making.
In the short term, this action will aim to enhance the professional profile of job candidates and give them a practical ‘toolbox’ to think and address the most pressing regional migration challenges. In the long term, it will reinforce migration interventions, institutions, and structures in the region through the consolidation and professionalisation of human capital.
This objective aligns on the EMM5’s overarching goal while contributing directly to the UN sustainable development goal 10.7.
EUROMED Migration V (2020-2023) is a programme funded by the European Union and implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD). It supports EU Member States and the European Neighbourhood Instrument Southern Partner Countries (ENI SPCs) in establishing a comprehensive, constructive and operational dialogue and co-operation framework on migration, with a particular focus on reinforcing instruments and capacities to develop and implement evidence-based migration policies.
