This workshop was a place to stimulate inter-agency and governmental discussion based on the experiences and work that Ecuador has been developing in migration statistics.



Proyecto UE-ALCMigration has become increasingly relevant for the European Union (EU) and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) relations in recent years.

Within this context, the project “Strengthening the dialogue and cooperation between the European Union (EU) and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) to establish management models on migration and development policies”, devised by the EU, has a dual aim: To strengthen political dialogue between the Latin American continent and the Caribbean and the EU, and to contribute to and participate in the process of cooperation to support the strengthening of regional and national capacities in the CELAC countries.

The implementation of the project was entrusted to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), which took on the role of leading partner, and the International and Ibero-American Foundation for Administration and Public Policies (FIIAPP) of Spain.
