Geneva, 31 October 2010 - ICMC held a series of Conversations on the Global Governance of Migration over the twelve months of October 2009 through October 2010 to build a process that would bring political leaders, policy makers, civil society and business leaders together.

"Working in concert" represents a synthesis of findings borne of the informal dialogue that was held with a broad range of senior migration actors to help stimulate public discourse of the need of a global governance of migration, facilitate relevant benchmarks and encourage decision makers to take up the cause with appropriate urgency.

Geneva, 30 May 2010 - In November 2008, through Conclusions of the Justie and Home Affairs (JHA) Council, the European Union (EU) committed to resettle up to 10,000 Iraqi refugees.

In this report, ICMC and IRC seek to acknowledge this EU commitment and document this joint effort toward the Iraqi refugee crisis to find out how far the EU has come in resettling "10,000 refugees from Iraq".

Geneva, 31 January 2010 - Over a period of three months, ICMC has consulted leading policy makers and actors within the migration field, bringing them together for informal discussions on the diverse challenges associated with global migration flows and approaches, and to discuss ways to improve international migration management.

"Connecting the dots" offers a summary report of these first conversations, including recommendations for next steps.

Geneva, 29 October 2009 - "Protection, mobility and livelihood challenges of displaced Iraqis in urban settings in Jordan" was prepared by ICMC with the support of the Swiss Department of Foreign Affairs.

It examines the motivations, current context and effects of both the Iraqi displacement and this conspicuous urban preference, framing central issues and approaches to assistance and protection for the Iraqis during their displacement and beyond. It concludes that short-term humanitarian approaches focussed on relief, are, by nature, insufficient for addressing the long-term challenges.
