January 2016 the European Commission launched a three-year regional programme “Regional Support to Protection-Sensitive Migration Management in the Western Balkan and Turkey” with IPA II funding.
As beneficiary of the programme in subject, MARRI RC in partnership with International Organization for Migration (IOM) as implementing partner of European Commission, is actively participating in following project activities aimed at strengthening MARRI’s role in the regional migration management.
The interpretation platform would facilitate the encounters of the migrants with authorities and service providers in occasions where official procedures are not required, available at border crossing points, in reception/asylum and admission centers, in social and health protection facilities, and throughout referral networks and operating procedures. It would be complementary to the existing interpretation procedures, providing a wider coverage for interpretation but it will not be in any way an alternative to the existing mechanisms.
