    Migration Outlook 2024 - 10 migration issues to look out for

    In a year full of elections, ICMPD expects migration to be a pivotal topic. While many governments implement quick fixes ahead of their electoral cycles, opposition parties are tying their campaigns to migration-related promises. 
    ICMPD’s 2024 Migration Outlook report forecasts record displacement levels resulting from war and conflict, leading to a further securitization of migration and offshoring of asylum procedures, as well as a rise in secondary movements. These developments are taking place while labour migration is ‘coming of age’ in Europe. The main author of the report, Martin Hofmann, ICMPD Principal Advisor provides an overview.

    Empowering Migrant Workers: The Migrant Resource Centre Advantage (Pakistan and Iraq)

    Where would you turn to if you had the wish to work abroad but were unfamiliar with the labour laws in the country of your destination? How would you ensure that the information that you find online is accurate and reliable? 
    In this episode, we delve into the critical role of Migrant Resource Centres (MRCs). Located throughout Central- and South Asia, they equip and empower migrants planning to work abroad,  as well as those who have already arrived in a country of destination or want to return home. Moreover, the Migrant Resource Centres carry out information campaigns to help prevent migrants from falling victim to smugglers and human traffickers. Meet our Senior Project Manager Roma Golda, who is joined by Tiba Ibrahim, MRC Counselor (Iraq) and Nadia Kashif, MRC Coordinator (Pakistan), who share their unique insights from the MRC’s work. Elisabeth Minkow moderates this episode.

On 4 March, 22, it pulled the so-called Temporary Protection Directive, for the very first time. One year into the war, the Directive, that had proved to be effective, was prolonged for another year. Nevertheless, the question remains: What can be ways out of the Temporary Protection Directive? ICMPD Senior Policy Advisor, Asylum Expert Martin Wagner, reflects back and looks into the future of Temporary Protection Directive and why it’s important to start to look for exit strategies now.
