Body:

The call for well managed and harmonized migration governance in Africa has been attributed severally as a key contributing factor to the socio-economic development for Africa. The need to enhance regularized pathways and protect the rights and safety of migrants is at its peak, to ensure that migration is not only beneficial to migrant groups and their families, but also to countries of destination and origin. Moreover, noting the risks and vulnerabilities migrants face throughout their migration journeys, the need to promote protocols and frameworks on the free movement of persons, goods and services is pertinent to the successful realization of continental and continental development commitments, such as the Agenda2063, the sustainable Development Goals for 2030 (SDG’s), and the Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration (GCM).

The APRM Technical Symposium on the African Migration Governance Conference, the broad objective of the workshop will be to identify issues for discussion in the proposed African Migration Governance Conference. In particular the scope of work for the conference will focus on the following areas:

i) Establish the status of, gaps and on-going/planned initiatives in the area of migration governance in Africa.
i) On the basis of the identified gaps, identify priority areas for policy intervention and programmatic implementation in the area of migration governance in the next 5 years,
ii) Identify channels and mechanisms to advance advocacy and domestication of the Free Movement of Persons Protocol to enhance regular and safe migration.
iii) From the identified priorities, crystalize the areas of focus for the African Migration Governance Conference.
