In the Spotlight: Interview with ICMPD Director General Michael Spindelegger

In 1993, ICMPD started as a small organisation with a handful of people and has over time grown into a global player in migration policy development. On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, ICMPD’s Director General Michael Spindelegger reflects on the past and the future of migration policies and ICMPD’s contribution to them.

Featured: Global Compact for Migration

On the eve of negotiations starting in New York on the recently released zero draft, we are sharing our recommendations as input to the dialogue around and development of a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.
