Fighting terrorism and transnational crime through effective border management.
Ensuring global border security requires close coordination among all stakeholders.
Many regional and international organizations have developed initiatives to improve border security, including their own database systems, which can add immense value to border management operations.
INTERPOL must therefore work closely with such organizations to improve data sharing capabilities and expertise in the field.
INTERPOL has a number of partnerships and agreements with external organizations to promote data exchange, including:
- International Air Transport Association (IATA)
- International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)
- World Customs Organization (WCO)
- International Organization for Migration (IOM)
- European Union (EU)
- United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC)
- Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD).
Joint police operations are held together with key partners such as Frontex, the European border control agency.
