Knowledge for policy

About the Knowledge Centre for Migration and Demography

The European Commission's Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography (KCMD) aims to provide independent scientific evidence for strengthening the Commission’s response to the opportunities and challenges related to migration, demography and related policies.

In strategic partnership with a number of Directorate Generals and services of the Commission, KCMD starts from the policy questions, maps and makes sense of existing knowledge, addresses knowledge gaps through its own research or in partnership with external organizations, and facilitates the uptake of its findings for EU policy makers and other stakeholders.

KCMD's lines of work cover both internal and external aspects of migration, and include underpinning research and anticipatory work.
