On 17 May 2019, IOM organized the ninth regular coordination meeting of the directors of Border Police agencies from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Kosovo*. These regular gatherings serve to exchange information on migration trends and routes as well as main changes in smugglers’ modus operandi. Having in mind that in summer usually the numbers of arrivals increase, representatives of the Western Balkan countries working on risk analysis and contingency planning have also been included in the discussion. The meeting was organized in the framework of the regional program “Enhancing Capacities and Mechanisms to Identify and Protect Vulnerable Migrants in the Western Balkans”, financed by the U.S. State Department, Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration.
