The 4th Euro-African Ministerial Conference on Migration and Development will be held on 27 November in Rome at the NH Midas Hotel, chaired by Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Paolo Gentiloni and Minister for the Interior Angelino Alfano, with Senegal holding the honorary co-chair, having last hosted the conference in 2011.
Conference attendees will include the representatives of 58 European and Western, Central and Mediterranean African nations, the European Commission and ECOWAS. Discussions will concern migration collaboration along the two priority axes of intersection between migration and development, and cooperation in combating the organised crime activities associated with illegal immigration (primarily in people trafficking and migrant smuggling), as well as the topics of legal migration and international protection. The event is one of the highpoints of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, which has made dialogue with third countries of origin and transit, and the integration of EU migration policies and external actions, a central point of its programme on migration matters.
