Our team was part of the Lebanese delegation that is participating in the EUROMED Migration Profile Process Regional Meeting in Jordan. The overall objective of this project is to foster cooperation on migratory issues between the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI) South Partner Countries and EU Member States, as well as between ENI South Partner Countries themselves. The project also aims to assist partners in their efforts to manage various forms of migration through evidence-based and coherent migration policies. The MPP Regional Meeting in Liege in November 2013 was the first stage, the next phase had two regional high-level workshops organized in Rotterdam and Berlin in June and October. The meeting in Jordan in November took stock of progress both at regional and national level and shaped the way forward for this central component of the EUROMED Migration framework.
