Earlier this week, BFPE’s Damjan Malbašić was in Budapest, where he contributed to the consultative meeting of partners and stakeholders launching the Civil Diplomacy on Migration project. Our hosts were partners from the Institute for Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Main objective of this project is to offer solutions for some of the problems caused by the migrant crisis, through a common platform, combining the minds of policy planers, decision makers and civil society representatives of the Central, Eastern Europe (CEE) and Western Balkans (WB).

Six online discussions (via podcast system) are envisaged; two for each of the three dimensions: (1) border-policing affairs and homeland security; (2) humanitarian and ethnical/religious affairs; (3) legal problems, questions, solutions, regional legal cooperation.

Finally, analysis referring to migration policies of all six WB countries will be prepared and disseminated as well.

Project is envisaged to end by 30 September 2017.
