International Catholic Migration Commission

Definition/Scope: (JP 3-08) The International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC) serves forcibly uprooted populations, refugees, internally displaced persons, and migrants, through programs focused on three durable solutions: return to a home country; re-integration into one's home country after return (or local integration in foreign countries where displaced communities cannot return home); and resettlement to another country. They concentrate our work on the most vulnerable amongst the uprooted: female heads of household, the frail and unaccompanied elderly, the traumatized, the disabled, separated children and at-risk minorities, plus women and girls trafficked into the commercial sex industry. ICMC programs promote individual, family and community recovery and reconstruction through trauma education, tolerance building, micro-credit lending, business and skills training, community services, small business development, return assistance, refugee identification and processing, cultural orientation training, and the provision of protection for refugees, returnees, and the internally displaced.
