Migration Policy Practice (Journal)

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) and Eurasylum Ltd publish a bimonthly journal, Migration Policy Practice, which contributes articles from, and which is overseen by, policymakers in national, regional and international administrations, as well as from civil society, worldwide. The journal was founded on the premise that the majority of existing journals in the field of international migration are mostly targeted at the academic community and/or at specialized practitioners. Migration Policy Practice was established to offer a new medium for public officials and civil society to reflect and write about their day-to-day policy practice, their decisions and their experience, and to share such insights with like-minded colleagues nationally and internationally.
