Geneva, 30 April 2009 - Marking another step towards improving the protection of migrant workers and members of their families worldwide, the International Catholic Migration Commission has joined with the International Steering Committee for the Campaign for Ratification of the Migrant Rights Convention in launching, on 30 April 2009, a new, user-friendly Guide on ratification of the International Convention on the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families.
ICMC regularly produces reports, advocacy materials, and other publications on a wide range of topics linked to migration. ICMC's publications focus on refugee resettlement, reception and integration of refugees, protection of migrants and refugees at sea, and child protection.
Manila, 1 September 2008 - This publication provides a gaps analysis regarding migrants and their families in today's societies and presents 35 concrete recommendations for addressing the identified gaps.
It is based on a consultation on migration with ICMC members throughout Asia, held in Manila in August 2008 and organised by ICMC, in cooperation with the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines. The publication was prepared to contribute to the debate at the Global Forum on Migration and Development.
Geneva, 1 December 2007 - Published by the Inter-Agency Standing Committe, with input from organisations including ICMC, the Guidelines give humanitarian actors useful inter-agency, inter-sectoral guidance and tools for responding effectively in the midst of emergencies.
Reflecting the insight of ICMC and numerous other agencies and practitioners, the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Guidelines for mental health and psychosocial support in emergency settings provide valuable information to organisations and individuals on how to respond appropriately during humanitarian emergencies.
Geneva, 31 July 2006 - In preparing for its July 2006 Council meeting, ICMC invited its 172 members worldwide to consider and strategize how to strengthen, develop and deploy our response to the different types and needs of people on the move today, in a world that increasingly needs migrants but does not always seem to appreciate their presence.
ICMC's discussion involved people of all levels engaged all over the world on behalf of refugees and migrants, and resulted in "Analysis, perspectives, action".
