Enhancing cross-border police cooperation through existing political frameworks

This Policy Brief is inspired by the findings of the event organised in February 2019 by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) in cooperation with Europol’s European Migrant Smuggling Centre (EMSC). Complemented by desk analysis and literature review, the paper analyses the latest developments related to migrant smuggling and document fraud as ways to facilitate irregular migration, underlining the role that existing political frameworks can play to enhance cross-border police cooperation.
