Public consultation on a Communication package on the EU Global Approach to Migration (24/05/2011)

The Delegation of the European Union to Ethiopia has the pleasure to communicate the launch of a public consultation on the Communication package on the EU Global Approach to Migration.

The Global Approach to Migration is the EU's strategic framework for cooperation with non-EU countries in the field of migration since 2005. The European Commission is currently preparing a Communication package on the Global Approach to Migration, which will also include working papers on migration and development and migration and climate change.

The purpose of this Communication is to evaluate the Global Approach so far and to define priorities for the future. To prepare these papers the EU is organising a wide public consultation, including with third countries in view of the importance that the Global Approach to Migration attaches to dialogue and cooperation with countries of origin and transit of migrants.

The consultation is organised through an online questionnaire and is open for individuals, organisations and public authorities.

More information, as well as the questionnaire is found at: http://ec.europa.eu/homeaffairs/news/consulting_public/consulting_0021_en.htm

The deadline of submission of feedback to this consultation is the 6th of June 2011.
