Globalisation, demographic change and marked economic disparities between countries create the conditions for migration pressures.
Crises and repression lead to an increased need for the EU to provide international protection to asylum seekers, displaced persons and other people fleeing their country of origin. This leads to challenges of migration and border management, integration and the combating of illegal migration. It also leads to new opportunities with new people bringing new skills and competences responding to demographic trends in Europe and improving international relations.
ICF GHK has undertaken many assignments in the field of migration and asylum at the EU and local levels.
