10-11/11/2023 – ICMPD’s Vienna Migration Conference 2023

The Vienna Migration Conference 2023 (VMC2023) will take place on 10-11 October.

VMC, now in its eighth year, is ICMPD’s annual flagship conference and Europe’s leading forum on migration, convening a diverse group of high-level officials, decision-makers, and thought leaders for forward-looking discussions about migration governance in Europe and globally. It provides an open and interactive space, on stage and off, to exchange information and best practices, leverage synergies, forge partnerships, and find common ground.

This year, the programme centres on labour migration dynamics, flanked by insights on the future of work and rapid urban transformations; the desire for safe and orderly migration is seen against policy frictions between managing borders and the imperative to protect people on the move; views are exchanged on the results delivered and promised by new initiatives, cooperation, and partnerships; and discussions take stock of efforts to move the European policy framework forward. You can find more details about the full conference programme here.
