Save the date - JCP Implementation Conference on Return
Published on:

The Joint Coordination Platform (JCP), in cooperation with the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Slovenia, Hilfswerk International, and Association HAJDE is organising an event called "JCP Implementation Conference on Return", from 21-23 June 2022, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The conference is a continuation of the "JCP Ministerial Return Conference - Regional Return Mechanism, Return Partnerships", held on 21 and 22 February 2022 in Vienna, whose conclusions have shown that there is a clear need for coordination, facilitation of procedures and communications, optimization, and joint support, especially in the area of return.

In the process of irregular migration, we are again facing major challenges, which clearly indicate the need for even more intensive cooperation and coordination at the regional level, and the conference will also bring together key actors at the european level in charge of operationalising returns.

The conference aims to establish an efficient and common system for return, strengthen structures within the EU, establish concrete partnerships between the Western Balkans region and the EU member states and Switzerland, exchange best practices and results, and agree on an action plan for the future in the field of irregular migration.
