Prague Process Knowledge Base

The Prague Process Knowledge Base builds upon the BMP one and gathers information in the form of a set of (Extended) Migration Profiles, which are based on the template prepared by the European Commission. The objective of the Building Migration Partnerships project (2009-2011) was to gather information necessary for the translation of the BMP Joint Declaration into action and resulted in a set of (Extended) Migration Profiles on selected countries (see below).

The interactive online map – PP i-Map – was developed to ensure access to the available information to all Prague Process / BMP participating states and is working on development of a database, which would allow for comparison of available data. The Prague Process i-Map can be accessed in full without registration.

The knowledge base was prepared through a set of high-level introductory missions and expert missions, as well as workshops and Senior Officials´ Meetings, which have served as the decisive body of the Prague Process.

In the course of the Prague Process Targeted Initiative the Knowledge base will further be developed and improved. As of 2012, the participating states have been discussing and developing a Migration Profile "Light" template with the aim to ensure information in this format in the i-Map on all 50 participating states.

The Prague Process Targeted Initiative is Funded by the European Commission, led by the Ministry of Interior of Poland and implemented jointly by the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Sweden. The implementation is supported by ICMPD.

The Interactive Map on Migration (i-Map) has served
as a support instrument to intergovernmental
dialogues on migration since 2006.

Its objective is to facilitate access to and exchange
of information through a wide range of services
e.g. migration country profiles, visualisations and news.

The i-map is currently being revised and
a revamped version will be
launched in early 2017.
