Quarterly review

We are delighted to share with you the April-June 2024 edition of the Quarterly Review, providing the latest updates from the Process.

The past three months saw the successful implementation of several important activities, including those co-organised with the European Migration Network (EMN), following the recently launched cooperation between the Prague Process and EMN. Meanwhile, the cooperation agreement with the EU Agency for Asylum (EUAA) resulted in the joint Kick-off Workshop of the Thematic Component 4 on Asylum and International Protection at the EUAA headquarter in Malta. Furthermore, the Prague Process Training Academy, in partnership with the EUAA, rolled out two foundational modules of the European Asylum Curriculum for asylum and reception officials from the Eastern Partnership and Central Asian states. 

This issue also covers insights from the World Border Security Congress 2024 and Identity Week Europe 2024, as well as the tailor-made training on identity verification and document authentication, spotlighting challenges, and advancements in border security, identity verification and document authentication.

The Prague Process Migration Observatory continues to offer detailed research and analysis on key region-specific developments. It has released three new policy briefs on the dynamics of forced migration from Ukraine, the wider impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on Central Asia, as well as the situation of displaced Afghans in Central Asia. All these and other updates, including the curated reading recommendations, prominently feature in this issue.

The second quarter of 2024 confirmed the strong state commitment to fostering cooperation on migration across all key strands of the Prague Process, gearing up for the upcoming 15th Anniversary Senior Officials' Meeting (SOM) in September 2024. The SOM will reflect on the journey so far, focus on several pressing challenges, and assess the implementation of the Action Plan 2023-2027.

We trust that you will find this issue both enriching and informative.
