The Commission has published two new e-books presenting a selection of projects implemented by the EU Member States and Schengen area countries under the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) and the Internal Security Fund (ISF). The projects demonstrate achievements realised through EU funds, which provide Member States with EU financial contributions to tackle common issues and challenges.
From disease prevention to setting up home security IT systems
- More Snapshots from the EU Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund is a collection of selected projects from 26 EU Member States tackling issues across various areas, such as gender-based violence, asylum, refugees’ integration, disease prevention and promotion of health of migrant women and their families.
- More Snapshots from the EU Internal Security Fund for police / borders and visas includes a wide selection of activities from 31 countries, such as the setting up and running of IT systems, procurement of operational equipment, provision of training schemes, and support to strengthen the operational capacity for preventing and combating crime.
Each project description is written in the local Member State language and English. Relevant links are provided for more information about the project or the fund managed by the Member States.
Later this week, a conference will take place with Member State representatives to address "BRIDGING THE PRESENT WITH THE FUTURE - EU Funds for migration, borders and security (2021-2027)".
Background: What are AMIF and ISF?
The Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) supports the efficient management of migration flows and the implementation, strengthening and development of a common Union approach to asylum and immigration.
The Internal Security Fund (ISF) supports the implementation of the Internal Security Strategy, law enforcement cooperation and the management of the Union's external borders
The funds are part of the Home Affairs funding instruments. They are designed to be flexible and responsive to both the common and the individual challenges and opportunities faced by the EU in migration, security and protecting the Schengen area.
