Vienna Migration Conference 2023

Vienna (hybrid) | IRU participation

VMC is Europe’s leading forum on migration and a global platform for tackling the policy dilemmas and seizing the opportunities that are connected with migration governance. Against the backdrop of a fast changing migration landscape, we aim to facilitate an open, inclusive and frank debate among a wide and diverse range of governmental and non-governmental stakeholders.

Uncover the VMC2023 programme, which will feature an impressive line-up of international leaders, practitioners, and experts from government and civil society. VMC2023 will tour prime themes in the European and global migration policy arena. Discussions will encompass the future of work in a digital world, the role of cities in migration governance, the value of migration partnerships, how the European Union is faring in its reform efforts, and much more.


Patrick Philipp, IRU Director Certification & Standards, will be part of the panel discussion from 15:15 to 16:15 on A new era for labour migration?

Widespread labour shortages in both traditional and non-traditional migrant destination countries are putting increased pressure on governments to review the way they manage labour migration, design international partnerships, and attract global talent. In this panel, a diverse group of government and private sector representatives share their insights and experiences on a topic that is seeing rapid changes in policy, practice, and public opinion. 

Other speakers:

  • Alexander Wilhelm, Director for International Relations, Federal Employment Agency, Germany 
  • Jo Antoons, Managing Partner, Fragomen 
  • Jennifer Tangney, Senior Project Manager, Migration Partnership Facility, ICMPD
