"We will work from the factory floor to the boardroom"

European officials set out to reduce labour exploitation through enhanced partnership at a recent event organised by ICMPD. Even today, labour exploitation continues to be a key challenge in European economies. The policy debates and legal frameworks covering the issue are complex and responses must be equally nuanced.

Understanding the linkages between migration and development in Turkey

Migration policy is not only a matter of domestic affairs. It cuts across a full range of sectoral portfolios, from foreign affairs to social, education, labour, economy and development policy. To raise awareness on the importance of adopting a coherent migration policy framework that takes development into account, ICMPD organised a training centred on the "The Migration and Development Nexus" for Turkish government officials last month.

Background Paper: Analysis of the impact of the political situation in Ukraine on the migration situation

How do the political developments in Ukraine impact the migration situation in Central and Eastern Europe? ICMPD's Background Paper for the 'Salzburg Forum' Ministerial Conference gives an overview of migration flows and routes in and from Ukraine. The large number of Internally Displaced Persons is an issue of concern, the paper highlights. The combination of the serious economic situation of the country and the continuing impact of the conflict create the potential for significant increase of migration flows towards the West. ICMPD's Acting Director General Gabriela Abado presented the paper at the ministerial conference last month.
