The purpose of ICMPD is to promote innovative, comprehensive and sustainable migration policies and to function as a service exchange mechanism for governments and organisations. According to the Agreement on the Establishment and Functioning of ICMPD the objectives are to promote international cooperation in the area of migration policies, as well as relevant research in these areas.
