Enhancing cooperation among the Prague Process states

The new issue of the Quarterly Review is released mere days ahead of the Fourth Prague Process Ministerial Conference. Throughout the thirteen years of the Prague Process existence, its Parties continuously discuss the most pressing challenges and needs, facilitate timely exchanges and build their national and regional capacities in the area of migration and asylum. The dynamic migration realities and the multiple crises that bring about new risks and uncover system vulnerabilities require continuous commitment and enduring work. The last quarter has been no exception with the Prague Process implementing several activities and releasing new publications, which all feature in this Quarterly Review.

Apart from a snapshot of recent Prague Process activities and some of the takeaways from the ICMPD’s Vienna Migration Conference 2022, this issue presents the overview of the Mid-year asylum trends in the EU, highlighting an increase of applications from many of the non-EU Prague Process states. It further touches upon the continuing conflict-driven displacement in parts of Central Asia and the South Caucasus. The observed migration from Russia amid the recently announced mobilisation is another topic reflected upon.

As usual, this issue proposes reading recommendations, including research produced by the Prague Process Migration Observatory.

The issue is available for download in English and Russian.
