Young Diplomats Educated about People Smuggling and Irregular Migration
The International Organization for Migration and the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Centre for Education and Training (Pusdiklat Kemenlu) ran a two-day workshop about people smuggling and the management of irregular migrants for junior-level diplomats on 7 and 8 September 2015 in Yogyakarta.
“These workshops are an excellent opportunity to bring a wide range of government agencies together to educate young diplomats and others with an interest in foreign affairs about their roles in the prevention of people smuggling and the management of refugees and asylum seekers,” said IOM Indonesia Deputy Chief of Mission Steve Hamilton.
“A coordinated response by all these institutions is a key component of Indonesia’s investment in maritime security and one IOM is actively supporting.”
Following Monday’s presentations from the Indonesian National Police, the Directorate General of Immigration and the head of Yogyakarta’s social services agency, participants visited sites where migrants attempting to board vessels to Australia have been intercepted, and met with local government officials and police officers with firsthand experience in managing these cases.
