From October 25 to 27 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, the Border Management Program in Central Asia (BOMCA 10) held a regional workshop (technical assistance) on the elaboration of a handbook on profiling and identification at the 1st line border checks.

The technical assistance mission was attended by representatives of border management agencies of Central Asian countries performing control procedures at borders.

As a result of the joint work, analysing the international and national best practices, a handbook was elaborated on profiling and identification of illegal migrants, terrorist-fighters, and refugees and other vulnerable categories of travellers.

After being translated into the national languages, the handbook will be distributed among the relevant agencies, to participants of the workshop to supplement the training process, as well as to the frontline staff, in order to strengthen their ability to address properly emerging threats and react to specific situations at the borders.

This workshop is organised by the EU’s BOMCA 10 Programme in partnership with the EU’s Law Enforcement in Central Asia Programme (LEICA), United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
