Policy Briefing No. 1 “Fostering Europe-Asia Cooperation in Addressing Irregular Migration and Refugee Movements”

by Patrick Rüppel

BY PATRICK RUEPPEl
Refugee movements and irregular migration are no new phenomena to Asia and Europe, but have shaped them for decades. Irregular migration patterns in both regions show certain similarities and the causes for leaving the respective home countries are also comparable. The direct linkages between the two regions concerning this challenge are strong. Despite these connections, collaboration has been limited. Thus, it is necessary to foster an exchange between both sides to address these matters jointly.
