Prague Process Quarterly Review

Following the successful adoption of the Ministerial Declaration and the Prague Process Action Plan 2023-2027 in October 2022, the fourth phase of cooperation was officially launched during the Prague Process Senior Officials’ Meeting (SOM) in Lisbon on 27-28 April 2023, graciously hosted by Portugal. During this important event,  the Czech Republic, the European Commission and the Prague Process Secretariat came together to present the 'Comprehensive Action Plan Support (CAPS)' concept to the Prague Process participating states, who overwhelmingly supported the initiative. The CAPS concept, which is set to be unveiled in autumn 2023, will carry on the work of the Prague Process's major pillars - Dialogue, Training Academy, and Migration Observatory – while also strengthening cooperation within the three targeted thematic components, which will address the key priorities identified among participating states.

This Quarterly Review provides an overview of the activities planned for the remainder of the year, as well as comprehensive updates on various Prague Process activities organised in the first half of 2023. This edition also includes an analysis of the reform of Germany’s Skilled Immigration Act, details on Moldova’s new temporary protection scheme, updates on the EU Year of Skills, key takeaways from the EMN Conference on climate and migration, as well as a tour d'horizon of the latest migration policy developments in Albania.

Lastly, the issue offers some relevant reading recommendations, including the latest research conducted within the Prague Process Migration Observatory.
