Since 2017, the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) has been active in India implementing projects related to migration management. In the period 2017 – 2022, ICMPD implemented the EU funded, India-EU Cooperation on Dialogue on Migration and Mobility (India-EU CDMM) project, alongside the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and a local partner- the India Centre for Migration (ICM).
The project focused on operationalizing the objectives laid out within the EU-India Common Agenda for Migration Management (EU-India CAMM), through activities in support of better management of mobility, legal migration, as well as to prevent and address the challenges related to irregular migratory flows, and enhance the developmental impact of the EU-India migration corridor for host and communities of origin. As part of the dialogue project, ICMPD – in conjunction with local partners and stakeholders – has facilitated several policy-focused exchanges for officials, hosted peer-to-peer sharing of best practices, and produced a wealth of knowledge-based tools on various topics including migration data, diaspora engagement, student mobility, and on preventing irregular migration.
