Organisational Overview: The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) is an international organisation tasked with promoting innovative, comprehensive and sustainable migration policies. With 17 Member States and over 60 projects active throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America, ICMPD is a growing and ever-more relevant presence in its field. The organisation’s greatest assets are its 200+ staff members, who personify its values of commitment, integrity, partnership, respect, and innovation in actions and decisions.
Project Overview: The Vienna Migration Conference is the yearly flagship conference of ICMPD. It brings together politicians, senior officials, experts and practitioners from governments, international organisations, civil society, academia and the media to debate the central aspects of migration policymaking. The VMC has become the largest and most relevant conference of its kind in Europe. It plays a vital part in exploring migration policy options, debating future strategies and fostering a sense of common purpose and direction. In this way, the VMC is a truly inclusive platform that helps to create legitimacy around one of the key political themes: international migration.
