The Africa-EU Partnership on Migration, Mobility and Employment

The Support Project for the Africa - EU Partnership on Migration, Mobility and Employment (MME) was launched by the European Commission (EC) and the African Union Commission (AUC) to foster the Africa - EU Migration Mobility and Employment Partnership (‘MME partnership’). The project provides an open framework for consultations on a flexible thematic and geographic basis, thereby strengthening the leadership of the key stakeholders and facilitating the exchange of information and good practices.

The ICMPD implements the project in partnership with the International and Ibero-American Foundation for Administration and Public Policies (FIIAPP), and the African Institute for Economic Development and Planning (IDEP). The project is directed by the AUC and the EC according to the priorities defined by African and EU states in the framework of the consultation structures established by the Africa - EU strategy. Representatives from all African and EU states convene to participate in a constructive dialogue on all migration-related aspects of the MME partnership, while national experts, academics and members of civil society are invited to contribute to the partnership through the various activities of the project.

The activities of the project include: political or technical policy meetings between African officials, European officials and experts to discuss the priorities of the MME partnership and to exchange information and expertise through a community of experts, a quarterly electronic newsletter and an MME page on the Africa-EU Partnership website, which is updated with news and success stories from the two continents.
