The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), established in 1993 by Austria and Switzerland, is an international organisation that works in migration-related fields. Although ICMPD has a European basis, it carries out its activities throughout the world, including in Europe, Africa, Central Asia, the Middle East and South America. Through its six Competence Centres, ICMPD provides its 18 Member States and numerous partners with in-depth knowledge and expertise in dealing with the phenomena of migration. It does so through using a holistic 3-pillar approach: research, capacity building and migration dialogues.
From September to November 2021, ICMPD in the framework of EU-funded ENIGMMA 2 project, organised the International School on Migration – Online Edition. For the first time, the International School on Migration was held online. The Online School offered 7 lectures on migration including development and diaspora, research, integration, economy, media, asylum and human rights.
