Proposals Due 4.4 2019. Support for civil society organisations to encourage EU and national policy-makers to shift their focus from coercion-based migration control (returns, detention, deterrence) towards solution-focused systems aimed at less irregularity.
- Develop capacity and expertise to implement case management and become key actors in the promotion of case management-based ATD vis-à-vis authorities, other CSOs and the general public;
- Generate new qualitative and quantitative data regarding the effectiveness of case management-based ATD, and contribute to advocacy and communications at regional level through the ATD Network;
- Constructively engage authorities and other relevant stakeholders through solution-based advocacy and promote the wider use of case management-based ATD in national migration systems in order to reduce irregularity on an effective, non-coercive basis.
