Mr Youssef Amrani Highlights in Munich Morocco’s Migration Policy

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

"Security responses alone are no longer enough to manage massive migratory flows in a coherent and concerted manner", said Mr Youssef Amrani, chargé de mission at the royal office.

Speaking during an interactive debate on migration and security at the Munich Security Conference, Amrani said that Morocco launched in 2006 the Rabat Process which provides a framework for consultation and coordination, contributes to meeting the challenges posed by migration and encourages opportunities for exchange and development.

This process aims to manage migration flows in a coherent and effective way, to focus on the human dimension of this management and to establish a permanent political dialogue between the various stakeholders, he pointed out during the meeting, which was attended by the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, and IOM Director General William Lacy-Swing.

Morocco has set up a national strategy, an appropriate action plan and a comprehensive immigration policy, he said, noting that Morocco’s new migration policy which was launched in 2013 at the initiative of HM King Mohammed VI aims at facilitating immigrants’ integration, upgrading the regulatory and institutional framework and managing migration flows with respect for human rights.

Mr. Amrani stressed the importance of controlled and managed immigration as a source of cultural and social enrichment and underlined the need to fight isolationism through a joint approach between all the partners.
