This document is an extraction of the “Guidelines for Integrated Border Management in European Commission External Cooperation” published in 2010. The Guidelines are on the one hand intended for staff in EU Delegations and EC Headquarters, as well as for the EC's partners and other donor agencies working and supporting EC projects in the field of Integrated Border Management (IBM), while, on the other hand, serve as an excellent tool for practitioners from the national border agencies. The latest version of the above-referred Guidelines has been prepared by the EuropeAid Cooperation Office with the support of the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD). Published with the financial support of the European Union in the framework of the project “Eastern Partnership cooperation in the fight against irregular migration- Supporting the implementation of the Prague Process Action Plan” (EaP-SIPPAP).
