The “Vienna Migration Conference” (VMC) is ICMPD’s annual flagship event for discussing the central issues in the field of migration, gathering political decision makers, government experts, academia, the media and civil society.
The VMC2018 will take stock of achievements and shortcomings, as well as dynamics and developments in a process that will continue to occupy the international community for many years to come.
It is an opportunity to debate how to overcome the current crisis management mode and move towards a sustainable migration governance system. Solving the political crisis related to refugee protection and addressing European needs for skilled migration are at the core of the debate at the Vienna Migration Conference 2018.
Moreover, it will take stock of the emerging policy architecture and will assess its potential to create ‘safe, orderly and regular migration’ at European level.
