The Brookings-SAIS Project joined with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in a Workshop on International Migration in West Africa, held in Dakar, Senegal from 29 September through 5 October 2002. Project staff addressed the ECOWAS member states on internal displacement and the Guiding Principles and discussed with them how to integrate the issue of internal displacement into the development of a regional approach to migration policy and into the programs and activities of ECOWAS.
