Western Balkans and Turkey

Since its creation, ICMPD has had a strong history with the Balkans and Turkey. In 2017, a regional office was founded in Turkey as the centre of the activities in Western Balkans and Turkey.


Western Balkans remain as a priority area for both strategic and operational reasons. ICMPD remains committed to further supporting the already improved work of the respective institutions in the Western Balkan countries to support the development and implementation of necessary proactive measures in order to facilitate sustainable migration management throughout the region.
