UN Migration Agency Calls for Balance Between Border Security and Facilitation at Africa Conference

IOM, the UN Migration Agency, delivered a keynote address at the Africa Border Management and Security Conference, which took place in Johannesburg from 28 to 29 November 2017, under the theme Securing Borders by Enhancing Cooperation amongst Border and Defence Authorities.

The need for agencies involved in border management to coordinate their work at national and international levels has become increasingly apparent in the light of the movement of migrants across borders in search of better socio-economic conditions or in flight from conflict; and the globalization of both crime and the international economy.

Integrated Border Management (IBM) relies on striking the right balance between facilitation of legitimate movement of trade and travellers across borders, and controlling borders to identify and prevent cross-border crime.

In her keynote address, Elizabeth Warn, IOM Senior Regional Thematic Specialist for Immigration and Border Management for Southern Africa, underscored the importance of IBM in the region, and highlighted the need for regional, as well as national, approaches towards IBM to increase collaboration and cooperation on border management.
