General Affairs and Research
The department is the interface between ICMPD and its Member States, partner states, the EU Institutions, international organisations, national and international NGOs and the general public. Pro-active relations with the Member States are as much part of its tasks as support to the Director General and the other directors in the planning and implementation of ICMPD’s external relations strategy.
The ICMPD Research Unit belongs to this department, as well as the ICMPD field representatives. In addition, the department is responsible for the development and implementation of ICMPD's communication strategy and it ensures the appropriate visibility and positioning of the organisation.
