Special focus: Migration

Migration will remain an important topic. The Migration Partnership will provide the overall framework for engaging in migration dialogue and strengthening migration policy development and migration management, in particular regarding third country migrants. Switzerland will also work across the migration-development nexus. It will continue supporting the government of Kosovo to cultivate relations with its citizens abroad and motivate them to be an important part of change and to ensure an effective reintegration of migrants returning to Kosovo.
