Rome, 4 August 2016 - During an event held in Rome last week, the International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC) launched a comprehensive research report on institutional frameworks allowing for the protection of labor migrants from the Philippines. 

ICMC’s publication, entitled « Labor migration between security and vulnerability: a voyage into grey zones », provides a detailed overview of the institutional and legal structures – both at the national and the international levels – which grant protection from trafficking and exploitation to the numerous Filipinos who leave their homeland to seek employment overseas.

Brussels, 15 July 2016 - On the backdrop of increasingly strong nationalist and xenophobic movements gaining more and more support throughout the old continent, a publication jointly produced by ICMC Europe and FORIM in collaboration with CONCORD and Caritas Europa attempts to debunk a set of common myths on incoming refugees and migrants.

The brochure, which is titled “10 Myths on Migration and Development”, aims to deconstruct popular misconceptions by providing reliable facts and figures and thus countering negative assumptions.

Brussels, 3 May 2016 - In order to gather and capitalize on the wide expertise gained over the past four years through the work of the ICMC-led SHARE Network, ICMC Europe published the report “Building a Resettlement Network of European Cities and Regions: Experiences of the SHARE Network 2012-2015”.

Active from 2012 to 2015, the SHARE Network brought together a variety of actors involved in refugee resettlement in Europe which worked jointly to facilitate the protection and integration of incoming refugees, as well as to promote a culture of welcome across the continent.

Geneva, 7 July 2015 - A new report issued by ICMC calls on governments worldwide to admit within their borders, by the end of 2020, 10% of the 4 million Syrian refugees uprooted in Turkey and the Middle East.

The report, entitled “10% of refugees from Syria: Europe’s resettlement and other admission responses in a global perspective” and supported by ICMC’s President Peter Sutherland, encourages States to offer resettlement places and other types of admission to 400,000 Syrians currently seeking refuge in neighboring countries.
