Short term technical assistance

Overall goal and areas covered

For the period of 2013-2015, the Support Project of the Rabat Process offers technical assistance to partner countries in order to implement activities linked to:

•          the cross-cutting topic of reinforcing evidence-based policy making

•          the thematic priorities of border management and migration in crisis situations

Technical assistance is provided through the deployment of international and local experts, which facilitates theexchange of knowledge between peers. It seeks to strengthen national capacities on a human and institutional level rather than by providing material resources.

Technical assistance – key features

Examples of available technical assistance 

  • Organisation of training workshops or identification of concrete initiatives (political or administrative reforms, development of programmes, …)
  • Creation of methodological tools (recommendations, guidelines, …)

The cycle and terms of technical assistance

We strongly encourage Rabat Process partner countries to draft a simple expression of interest. A standard form is available here. The deployment of assistance has to be coherent with technical assistance available in the framework of other initiatives.

The team of the Support Project is available to assist you in the formulation of your request for technical assistance. Please direct your expression of interest to the following email address: or fax number: +32 2 231 14 12.
