Latin America and the Caribbean

Cooperation between the EU and IOM in Latin America and the Caribbean primarily supports regional initiatives and emerging migration and displacement priorities.

Past regional cooperation has included a joint support programme for the EU-LAC Structured Dialogue on Migration and the ACP Observatory for Migration. In 2018, IOM managed the ACP-EU Migration Action and a programme supporting the integration of refugees in Argentina.

Our regional priorities for strengthening collaboration with the EU include forced displacement and development, the migration-security nexus and migrant protection and assistance.
