At the crossroads between the Atlantic, Sub-Saharan and North Africa, Senegal is subject to various emigration and immigration pressures of a socio-economic and political nature. Due to its geographical position, Senegal is considered an important gateway forirregular migrants from Sub-Saharan countries who transit the country towards North Africa and Europe.

In this context, the Ministry of Interior requested support from MIEUX in 2010 to contribute to the development of national migration policies aiming at reducing irregular migration. Overall, this Action contributed in identifying the main gaps and needs of Senegalese border management as well as the finalisation and approval of its National Border Management Strategy and its National Action Plan.
