EZA’s networks and platforms: International Platform of Co-operation and Migration (IPCM)

on Tuesday, 05 May 2015 15:14.

The IPCM is an offshoot of the EZA. In fact the EZA realised that sever- al of its members were involved in issues related to the mobility of workers and their families and were giving special attention to migration phenomena. At the same time, other members were working on international co-operation projects for development. So a group of EZA mem- bers decided in 2004 to start up this plat- form. In 2009 it was constituted as a legal entity in the form of an association. We have had training seminars and meet- ings in Brussels, Naples, Palermo, Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Toledo, Valladolid, Lisbon, Amarante, Guimarães, Évora and Malta. The topics have included: "The labour market and migration in the EU: How to put an end to the social exclusion of migrants? The role of trade unions and migrants' organisations in the processes of integration" in 2014; "The economic and social crisis, its impact on the labour market in the EU: an analysis of the cur- rent situation, forecasts for development, political and legal requirements for a framework conducive to creating jobs for migrants and local people" in 2013; and the "Participation of immigrants in the social dialogue and in the labour market" in 2012.(EZA News)
