Setting up of a Regional Mechanism to Support Negotiations with Source, Transit and Destination Countries with the aim to Reduce Irregular Migration.
The project initiated constructive dialogue with source, other transit countries and countries of destination on ways and means to reduce irregular migration to and through the Western Balkans. It also attempted to develop practical cooperation mechanisms to support the return of rejected asylum seekers and irregular migrants to their countries of origin. Government representatives from Western Europe (destination countries) attended meetings foreseen in the project agenda. The project was implemented by MARRI for a period of a year. Countries involved in the project: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia & Montenegro.
