COOPERATIVE EFFORTS TO MANAGE EMIGRATION

Funder: Migration Dialogue, administering funds from German Marshall Fund and Hewlett Foundation 

The project examined ways in which immigration destinations can work more effectively with source and transit countries to coordinate movements and reduce emigration pressures. CEME sought models/best practices that:

  1. spurred economic development and promote democratization and respect for human rights in the countries of origin, with special focus on programs targeted at specific communities and population groups with large numbers of actual and potential migrants;
  2. enabled migrants in destination countries to work more effectively with their communities of origin to reduce emigration pressures (e.g. strengthening programs that match remittances with other funds to speed up job-creating development); and
  3. promoted cooperation between countries of origin, transit and destination in managing migration.
