ICMPD's organisational structure
Migration is a global, cross-regional and transnational concept. In order to ensure the best possible results in its work, ICMPD’s structure is decentralised and based on the principle of worldwide mobility. Hierarchies are flat and decisions be implemented timely.
ICMPD’s Headquarters are located in Vienna. There is further a Mission in Brussels, Regional Office Mediterranean in Malta and 15 more Regional – and Coordination Offices and duty stations.
ICMPD has 19 Member States who form a Steering Group that exercises general supervision of ICMPD, approve strategic decisions and appoint the Director General for a period of 5 years. Decisions are taken based on the majority principle. The Steering Group is chaired by a different member state each year (rotation principle).
