ICMPD short-term consultancy: Policy on Engagement with Iraqis Abroad

 The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) has been supporting the government of Iraq in the development of a diaspora engagement strategy with the assistance of Dr. Michaella Vanore and Prof. Melissa Siegel. Dr. Vanore will work with ICMPD in finalising the ‘Policy on Engagement with Iraqis Abroad’ framework designed to support the long-term engagement of Iraqis residing abroad in the further development of their country of (ancestral) origin. As part of this work, Michaella will participate in workshops with representatives of the Government of Iraq and will further revise the policy in line with their comments. ICMPD’s work in this policy is part of the project ‘Improving Migration Management in the Silk Routes Countries.’
