  • [Project] G7 Conference SALW in the Sahel

    • Never before has the Sahel–Maghreb region experienced such a high level of small arms availability. Following the fall of Gaddafi, non-state armed actors overran sizeable weapons depots in Misrata and Zintan, quickly turning Libya into an open market for arms. These small arms and light weapons (SALW) have since headed east (to Egypt, Sinai, and Palestine), west (to armed groups in northern Mali via Algeria and the Tunisian border), and south (to Boko Haram in Nigeria via Niger and ...

  • [Event] The GAPs project has launched at BICC!

    • GAPs is not an acronym – it’s a reference to a disconnect between what global return migration policies are expected to do, and what they do in practice. Migration return is a vital component of how national and EU asylum programs are managed. Yet, there is little alignment on the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of return. Critically, the experience of migrants is hardly considered when policymakers make decisions on return migration.
    • Friday, 23 June 2023: The GAPs project wants to change this. Specifically, it will: a) scrutinise the shortcomings of the EU’s governance of returns internally and externally.b) examine the complex interactions of policymakers and local actors involved in return processes to shed light on cooperation failures.c) analyse the perspectives of migrants themselves to understand their knowledge of return policies, aspirations, and experiences.GAPs is a new Horizon Europe project coordinated by Uppsala University and BICC w...
