The HOD, Jan Tombiński, participated to the Forum on Migration which was held at the Vatican on 21 February 2017.

The Head of the EU Delegation has presented  the main engagements of the EU to address the root causes of migration in line with the Global Strategy. The EU's actions englobe peace and stability, with the instruments of Common Security and Defence Policy (policy  and military operations, mediation, strengthening of local policy forces), governance (training, expertise, templates for legal acts, financial support for the administration) and investments. The EU offers financial instruments for Africa in form of Trust Fund for Africa, and a bigger instrument, External Investment Plan is under preparation. All these instruments focus on creation of partnerships with recipient countries and on the principle of ownership of the own destiny by the population and its leadership.
