Тhis publication aims to provide policy-makers and practitioners with an overview of the challenges faced in establishing the identity of migrants, as well as possible ways to tackle them. The document results from the fruitful
cooperation among the 21 states that took part in PP5: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine. PP5 was implemented in the framework of the Prague Process Targeted Initiative in 2014- 2016.
The Handbook combines international practice with the national experience of the PP5 participating states, which have been facing different migration challenges. In view of their varying experience with regards to the identification of irregular migrants, the project provided a suitable platform to exchange know-how and discuss the national approaches and current practices in order to strengthen the common understanding.
