About: The ACP-EU Dialogue on Migration and Development was launched after the Ouagadougou revision of the Cotonou Agreement in 2010. During the first round of discussions of the ACP-EU Dialogue in Brussels in May 2011, different priority subjects where put into the table. During the 2011-2012 cycle of discussions, the ACP-EU members decided to focus attention on visas, remittances and readmission. It was at the 37th Session of the ACP-EU Council of Ministers in Vanuatu that concrete recommendations of the Dialogue on the three mentioned areas [visas, remittances and readmission] were endorsed. These recommendations provide the background for all the interventions and initiatives supported through the ACP-EU Migration Action. Since the latest ACP-EU Council of Ministers in June 2015 where the recommendations elaborated by the Expert’s meeting on July 2014 and validated by the Ambassadors’ meeting on January 2015 were adopted, the ACP EU Migration Action will also implement activities as to address the issues of trafficking in human beings and smuggling of migrants. The ACP-EU Migration Action is supported by the Secretariat of the African, Caribbean, and Pacific Group of States (ACP Secretariat) and the European Commission (EC). The Action is funded by the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) and implemented by the International Organization of Migration (IOM).
