Promoting safe and informed migration is a core component of the EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration. The EU-IOM Joint Initiative provides accurate information on migration and return to migrants and both their host societies and communities of return. The aim is not only to inform about the risks of irregular migration, but also about possibilities of regular migration, and to foster better understanding between migrants/returnees and their societies. The activities seek to ensure that migrants and potential migrants are enabled to make informed decisions.

Communication activities will not only raise awareness but also influence behaviour and mobilise communities while engaging decision-makers through advocacy measures.

How is the EU-IOM Joint Initiative promoting safe and informed migration and social cohesion?
