Welcome to the MARRI Regional Centre in Skopje
The Migration, Asylum, Refugees Regional Initiative (MARRI) deals with the issues of migration management in the Western Balkans by promoting closer regional cooperation and a comprehensive, integrated, and coherent approach to the issues of migration, asylum, border management, visa policies and consular cooperation, refugee return and settlement in order to meet international and European standards. MARRI's top priority is the enhancement of regional cooperation in its fields of activities among countries in the region, as a vital part of EU integration process and in line with the Thessaloniki Agenda for the Western Balkans. The overall idea was that the countries of the region take ownership of the regional cooperation. The MARRI Member States have expressed their readiness for the ongoing progress in MARRI fields, as shown by the transfer of MARRI under regional ownership.
