Work is beginning at the Ministry of Interior and Administration (‘MSWiA’) to develop a comprehensive, responsible and secure migration strategy for Poland for 2025-2030.
As previously announced, the timetable of activities was presented by Deputy Minister Maciej Duszczyk, who is responsible for international issues and migration policy at the Ministry of the Interior and Administration. The process of adopting the strategy will be completed before Poland assumes the Presidency of the Council of the European Union in January 2025.
“The migration strategy will contain key decisions from the point of view of the state. It will be a synthetic and directional document for actions taken by various institutions and entities implementing migration policy”, stressed Deputy Minister Maciej Duszczyk.
In January, the Inter-Ministerial Team on Migration was reactivated. The Team will coordinate work related to the management of migration processes. The first meeting of the Inter-Ministerial Team on Migration will be held on 7 February this year.
In February-April this year, a questionnaire will be prepared in consultation with the scientific community (Committee on Migration Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences). It will contain a set of issues on migration and migration policy and then will be sent to a wide range of actors involved in migration policy. The questionnaire will be available in both paper and electronic versions. Based on its results, a report will be produced by the end of August.
Then, in September, based on this report, a draft of a comprehensive, responsible, and safe migration strategy for Poland will be presented to the Interministerial Team on Migration. Public consultations on the draft are planned for October and November 2024.
