Forced Return Monitoring project holds closing conference

On 23 October, the EU-funded Forced Return Monitoring II project implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) held its closing conference in Nuremberg, Germany.

The European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) and FRA were implementing partners of the project. They contributed to its overall objective of protecting the fundamental rights of returnees through independent and transparent forced return monitoring. Besides assisting to enhance the capacity of national forced return monitoring mechanisms, the project also contributed to the setting up of the EU-wide Pool of Forced Return Monitors currently managed by Frontex.
