Continued Support for Integrated Border Management

In October 2017, as part of the EU-funded project ‘’Regional Co-operation on Border Management with Greece and Bulgaria Phase 2 (RCBM)’’, a project launch and first project steering committee meeting was held in Ankara to coordinate with all involved parties. The project aims to support Turkey’s border management efforts by enhancing cross-border cooperation with Greece and Bulgaria. IOM’s border management team also began field work at the eastern and southern borders of Turkey alongside the Ministry of Interior. The UK-funded project “Integrated Border Management Assessment (IBM) in Turkey” will provide valuable information to build the most appropriate response to managing Turkey’s most challenging borders.
