Our Approach

Making Migration Better

ICMPD strives for comprehensive, sustainable and future-oriented migration governance and applies a three-pronged approach: capacity building, migration dialogues, and research. These three elements feed into each other and together they represent the “DNA” of ICMPD. Drawing on the three-pronged approach, ICMPD supports its Member States and partners by sharing with them its in-house knowledge and profound expertise in all fields of migration management. As the facilitator of several migration dialogues, ICMPD is in a unique position in terms of regional networks and knowledge as well as geographic and thematic outreach.
