Governance

The International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC) is governed by three different structures:

 

The Council

The Council is the policy-making body of the Commission. The members of the Council are representatives of Catholic Episcopal Conferences and/or other Catholic organizations concerned with migration and refugee issues. The Council elects the Governing Committee.

The Governing Committee

The Governing Committee carries out the decisions of the Council, approves the annual budgets and proposals prepared by the Secretariat and other affiliated structures, and monitors the implementation of the decisions of the Council by the Secretariat.
