The ICMPD library catalogue offers one of the largest collections of migration-specific literature and documentation in Austria. The catalogue focuses especially on the compilation of “grey literature” (unpublished reports, seminar papers, research reports, etc.), but also on contributions to journals, collected editions, and monographs. In recent years increasing importance has also been given to the inclusion of publications from international European institutions, such as the European Commission, the European Council, the Global Commission for International Migration, COMPAS, etc. The current focus of documentation thus lies especially on new releases and online publications regarding migration policies on an international and European level.
In addition, the library catalogue provides an exhaustive collection of Austrian migration and asylum statistics, comparative migration and integration policies, and respective laws.
Currently the catalogue draws upon about 40 international and Austrian migration-specific journals, which are regularly updated and freely accessible to all library users.
The ICMPD library catalogue comprises literature on:
• Causes, developments and impacts of migration flows
• Austrian, European, and global migration and asylum statistics
• Integration of immigrants in Austria and the EU
• Asylum and refugee policies
• Irregular migration and human smuggling
• Trafficking in human beings
• European integration
