Church networking

ICMC’s work is nurtured by the activities of its members: a worldwide network of Catholic Bishop Conferences and Episcopal assemblies engaged in migration and refugee issues at the local and national level. Through local engagement and sharing of experiences in regional working groups, ICMC’s members significantly contribute to increasing awareness about migration issues and necessary responses in various regions of the globe.

ICMC voices the concerns of its members in regional and international policy-making fora, disseminates information, and promotes interaction among its members. The continued concern of the Church to protect migrants and promote a better understanding of human mobility is widely expressed by the variety of Church organizations working together as part of an interactive network: the Episcopal Commissions, the Secretariats for the Regional Conferences, the ICMC Working Groups, the parish communities, the Scalabrini International Migration Network, Caritas and other Catholic organizations.
