EU International Partnerships: Migration

Well-managed migration can enhance the development of both the countries of destination and origin and be beneficial for the migrants themselves and their families. The European Union developed a comprehensive European approach to migration through which we strive to both protect migrants and refugees and help partner countries address the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement. The Directorate-General for International Partnerships is responsible for the EU’s contribution to sustainable development, the eradication of poverty, peace and the protection of human rights.
