As 2023 comes to an end, we take the opportunity to reflect on our recent work and share our aspirations for the coming year.
This issue focuses on the most recent Prague Process events and outputs, while also covering a few migration policy updates that will steer our work in the future. Although the world we live in is increasingly dynamic, uncertain and complex, the Prague Process continues to keep up with the pace and address the most urgent needs of its states as endorsed by the 2022 Ministerial Declaration and laid out in the Action Plan 2023-2027. Echoing the words of Henry Kissinger who once said that ‘each success only buys an admission ticket to a more difficult problem’, we remain confident that anticipated new challenges will bring growth and foster cooperation among the Prague Process partners. This Quarterly Review starts with a message from Mr Martin Šustr, Head of EU Migration and Asylum Policy Unit, Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic, current Chair of the Prague Process, before diving into the most recent Prague Process activities, including the Study visit to BAMF, the Expert Workshop on Digitalisation, and the Kick-off Workshop on Readmission, Voluntary Return and Sustainable Reintegration. In addition, this issue outlines the courses available on the Prague Process e-Learning Platform, provides a short progress analysis of the EU’s migration and asylum policy reform, and presents a snapshot of the Frontex Status Agreement with Albania, as well as a résumé of the 2023 Enlargement Package. Lastly, the Review offers relevant reading recommendations, including the latest research carried out within the Prague Process Migration Observatory.
