Special Issue: Vienna Migration Conference Publication released

Dear Subscriber,

In November 2016, ICMPD held the first Vienna Migration Conference. Bringing together politicians, policy makers and experts, the conference discussed the way forward for Europe in the context of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants. More than 300 participants assessed shortcomings in the past, considered current challenges and discussed ideas for the future. 

We have synthesised the key aspects of the 32 speakers’ contributions in a concise conference publication. This comprehensive collection presents analyses, thoughts, assessments and outlooks on how to improve migration policy. You can also watch the interviews we conducted with different participants and download the working papers prepared for the conference.  

This special issue will give you an in-depth insight into the Vienna Migration Conference 2016 – a conference that will take place again in autumn 2017! 

Happy Reading, 

Lukas Gehrke, Director Policy, Research & Strategy, content conception

Bernhard Schragl, Communication and Media Coordinator, project lead
