PROMOTING BORDERPOL

BORDERPOL 2020 THEME


Each fall the General Secretariat announces the annual operational theme for BORDERPOL. These have in the past reflected issues such countering human trafficking, development of new border clearance systems, and promoting interdisciplinary cooperation between government and industry. In today's social media environment the use of hash tags is ubiquitous and necessary to promote such themes. 

The theme for 2020 focuses on BORDERPOL's most important mission and purpose to promote global cooperation among like-minded organizations, law makers and front line professionals. In addition to the aforementioned it has always been carried out by our team with the aim of doing good.  Therefore the operational theme for 2020 is simple and clear,  BORDERPOL for good 

#BORDERPOLforGood will be used on official and sanctioned publications and social media.

BORDERPOL EXPERTS CLUB

 

The CEO has approved the creation of an association of “individuals who wish to further their interests with others engaged in border security and migration management matters in a constructive and professional manner.
If you are someone who has a prolonged or intense experience through practice and/or education in the area of border security and migration management and wish to share this expertise with others the BEC may be for you. Short term and strategic benefits for membership in BEC may be possible in professional as well as social circles. At its most basic level, BEC will be a professional networking site. Not only will BEC enable you to connect with people you know, it will enable you to connect with the broader BORDERPOL global community. 

 
The BORDERPOL Experts Club will be officially launched during the 8th BORDERPOL Global Forum in February 2020. However if you believe your peers consider you to be a person who has a comprehensive and authoritative knowledge of or skill associated with border security or migration/refugee/traveler management and want to be included sooner contact the General Secretariat.
