With Malta and Turkey both joining Vienna based ICMPD in May, the International Centre for Migration Policy Development welcomes two new Member States. ICMPD has now 17 Member States all across Europe. In 2018 ICMPD is also celebrating the 25th anniversary of its founding and is looking into the future to try to see what it may hold in terms of migration and mobility of people.

ICMPD’s Director General Michael Spindelegger took the opportunity to welcome the two new member states at ICMPD’s last steering group meeting in Bukarest, Romania.

Both Malta and Turkey are not only hosting ICMPD offices and staff in their respective countries but have already closely cooperated with ICMPD on a broad range of projects in different thematic areas.
