Decrypting ICMPD

Despite its substantial growth since its establishment
in 1993, the International Centre for Migration Policy
Development (ICMPD) is still a relatively small
organization in terms of staff and budget compared to
other key actors of the EU border regime. Over the years
however, ICMPD turned from a minor and temporary
consultancy project to an important service provider for
European states and a vital player for the externalization
of the EU border control regime. More recently, ICMPD
is increasingly involved in EU-funded procurement
programs and supplies non-European states with border
control and surveillance equipment. Since ICMPD opened
its Tunis office in 2015, its impact on the Tunisia-EU
migration cooperation grew substantially. Yet, the
organization is still largely unknown in both Tunisia and
Europe. Hence, this report aims at profiling ICMPD’s
activities in Tunisia and shedding light on its history,
overall agenda and operational transformation to better
understand its impact in Tunisia and beyond.
