Dear Colleague

You are invited to submit an abstract to the Congress Committee for consideration for inclusion in the 2019 World Border Security Congress.

Borders in the Maghreb are increasingly dangerous. Armed with tools designed for the pre–Arab Spring environment, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia face a complex new world of transnational actors that leverage borders for profit and for sanctuary.

The Arab Maghreb Union (AMU) was designed to deepen cooperation among the Maghreb states, buttress the region’s economy through greater interregional trade, enable the free movement of people, and lay the groundwork for future political integration. However, the promise of an integrated Maghreb has not materialized, though the union still exists.

The region is also a main thoroughfare for the West African human trafficking and migration route to Southern Europe, with access to Spanish soil and the EU border in the North African enclaves of Melilla and Cueta, just a short journey from mainland Europe across the Mediterranean, whilst smuggling of arms and illegal goods across North Africa also adds pressure on the governments and border security forces of the region..

The 2019 World Border Security Congress, co-hosted by the Ministry of Interior (Ministere de l’Interieur) & Directorate General for Migration & Border Surveillance (Directeur de la Migration at de la Surveillance des Frontieres) and supported by the International Security Industry Organisation, National Security & Resilience Consortium and International Association of CIP Professionals, is a high level 3 day event that will discuss and debate current and future policies, implementation issues and challenges as well as new and developing technologies that contribute towards safe and secure border and migration management.
