Priority question for written answer  P-000985/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Jean-Paul Garraud (ID)
 Subject: EU-IOM Joint Initiative

The EU-IOM Joint Initiative, which was launched in December 2016 for a duration of four years with funding from the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa, aims to reintegrate migrants into their countries of origin as well as to assist them on their journey to Europe.

The scheme involves EU Member States and 26 African countries.

The IOM has received funding of EUR 450 million for this programme and is requesting a further EUR 100 million to continue these operations in 2021.

While one part of this programme supports return operations for migrants, the other part undeniably contributes to promoting immigration to Europe by assisting migrants on their journey to Europe.

Can the Commission:

1. Communicate the amounts spent and the budget breakdown between operations relating to migrant returns and those relating to assistance on routes leading to the EU?

2. Indicate precisely how many migrants received support from the initiative in returning home in the years up to and including 2020, and how many were given assistance to come to Europe?

3. Indicate the contributions of the European Union, Member States and African countries to this programme since 2016?
