European Commission

ICMPD works with many other organisations and institutions, both national and international. Among these, the European Commission (EC) is the most important for ICMPD. Almost half of ICMPD's project funding comes from EC funds, including from their thematic programmes. The EC supports many of ICMPD's activities throughout the world in the areas of border management, migration and development, asylum, and legal migration, as well as in fighting trafficking in human beings and illegal migration. The EC is also a strong promoter of human rights and international cooperation, which are core aspects of ICMPD's work. The tables below list the ICMPD projects that were awarded EC funding in 2011 and 2012.
