Conference focuses on managing migration in the Mediterranean

The agency joined the 7th conference of ‘Shared Awareness and De-confliction in the Mediterranean’, organised by the EU Naval Force Mediterranean.

This biannual event brought together over 250 participants from almost 40 countries, including the different forces operating in the Central Mediterranean, EU institutions and agencies as well as international organisations, the shipping industry, NGOs and academia.

The conference serves as the forum where key stakeholders engaged in managing migration and fighting against illicit activities in the Central Mediterranean come together and share situational awareness, assessment of trends, best practices and discuss further ways of avoiding potential clashes and coordination.

The conference took place in Rome from 23 to 24 January.
