MARRI was set up in 2003 by merging the Migration and Asylum Initiative (MAI) and the Regional Return Initiative (RRI) – both established within the Stability Pact for South Eastern Europe. MARRI was created in line with the basic guidelines of the concept of regional ownership, whereby the capability of the above states to independently cooperate and harmonize their own policies with the very important segments of European integration, migration, asylum and refuges, i.e. the ability to reach European standards in these areas, is proven.The Initiative's highest body is the Regional Forum which provides political support to the Initiative's work. It engages ministers and high representatives responsible for the issues of, asylum, migration, border management, visa regime and return of displaced persons. The Forum serves for exchange of information, experience and for making decisions of common interest to its Member States. The Regional Forum is supported by the MARRI Regional Centre in Skopje, which serves as a liaison office through which Forum decisions are implemented.
Currently, MARRI seeks for a CIM Ingtegrated Expert, in accordance with the Job Announcement you can find HERE.
