The next thematic meeting of the Euro-African Dialogue on Migration and Development (Rabat Process) on Asylum and International Protection, will take place in Rabat on the 15 and 16 June 2015 under the joint chairmanship of the Kingdom of Morocco and the Kingdom of Spain.


This thematic meeting focuses on issues of asylum and international protection and particularly aims at identifying approaches to strengthen and develop national protection systems in view of a better regional cooperation in this area within the Rabat Process region.


The meeting will focus on the following issues:

  • The impact of the crises, both within the region and faraway, on mixed flows in the Rabat Process region
  • Regional responses and cooperation in view of emergency situations
  • Effectiveness and efficiency of regional prevention strategies and long-term planning in view of regional mixed migration flows
  • Strengthening and developing reliable national asylum systems in view of a multiplication of regional asylum programmes and a possible setting up of a regional protection system


This meeting will lead to:

  • The development of a mutual understanding of issues related to asylum and international protection
  • An identification of concrete initiatives and guiding lines that could allow the states to reach visible results for developing and improving their national asylum systems and to better prepare their regional emergency response
