The IOM Country Office for Austria considers activities in the area of liaison and awareness-raising concerning migration and development as vital tasks. Therefore, constant exchange with relevant stakeholder in the project landscape is considered as highly important. The IOM Country Office thus is a member of the national working group on migration and development, which consists of development organizations, diaspora associations and migration organizations. In the frame of this working group a national position paper on migration and development was compiled, which also is supported by the national umbrella organization of Austrian development organizations, being the Global Responsibility - Platform for Development and Humanitarian Aid.
Currently there are no projects implemented by the IOM Country Office for Austria in the area of migration and development.
