The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), an international organisation with its headquarters in Vienna, Austria, is looking for qualified candidates to fill the above-mentioned position of Migration Governance Process Officer EUROMED Migration IV.
The EUROMED Migration IV, a project funded by the European Union (EU), aims to implement a comprehensive and shared approach to strengthen effective dialogue and cooperation on migration, mobility and international protection and asylum between EU Member States (EU MS) and European Neighborhood Instrument South Partner Countries (ENI SPC). To this end the project will provide a comprehensive, constructive and operational dialogue and co-operation framework, with particular focus on reinforcing regional and national instruments and capacities to develop and implement evidence-based and coherent migration and international protection policies and actions. The project will work around two main dimensions, namely 1) regional dialogue and cooperation and 2) capacity building and small scale actions. Horizontal and cross-cutting activities will support both dimensions, with particular focus on communication and regional actions, especially in the perspective of contributing to the dissemination of balanced information for a more positive narrative on migration.
The EUROMED Migration IV takes an inclusive approach and, in addition to governments as primary stakeholders, civil society representatives (private sector, trade unions, universities, local NGOs, media, migrants’ associations and all other relevant actors emerging from civil society) will be involved during all phases of the action.
The Migration Governance Process (MGP) is based on the experience of the Migration Profile Process (MPP) conducted with willing ENI SPC during the implementation of the EUROMED Migration III (2012-2015). The MPP was conceptualised on the basis of lessons learned regarding the limitations of the Migration Profile (MP). In a constantly evolving migration landscape, ENI SPC underlined the need for improved access to migration data for evidence-based policy-making and inter-institutional cooperation for coordinated and coherent migration governance. The MGP thus aims to support countries interested in strengthening their national migration governance capacities and their ability to ensure evidence-based policy making on migration through a series of measures which include: setting up inter-institutional cooperation on migration on national level, supporting the development of strategies, instruments and tools to accompany the process, implementation and sustainability of the process, South-South exchange through meetings and workshops and tailor-made technical support and trainings. In parallel to the MGP, the Migration Governance Tool (MGT) - also conceptualised and developed under the EUROMED Migration III – will be further developed so as to efficiently support engaged countries.
The MGP Officer will be working within the Directorate Southern Dimension. The overall strategic oversight, steering and high level intervention will be ensured by the Regional Coordinator for the Mediterranean. The MGP Officer will report to the EUROMED Migration IV Project Manager, and work closely together with the knowledge Manager. The MGP Officer will be responsible for the MGP and will coordinate the work of MGP International and National Experts. In addition s/he will manage the further development of the MGT.
