ILO stakeholder Conference January 14-15

On January 14-15, GDISC supported the Dutch Immigration Office IND and the Swedish Migration Board in organizing a meeting on ILO stakeholders in Stockholm. Participants from Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the European Commission attended the meeting, that was part of the Common Immigration Liaison Project, funded by the European Border Fund (EBF).

The purpose of the conference was to exchange experiences and look for best practices on how to organise the ILO-work and posting of ILOs abroad, also focusing on how we can relate the back office functions in the Member States supporting the ILOs.

A list of back office contact points will be made and circulated by the GDISC Secretariat. Conclusions and other meeting material is shared on the restricted area of the GDISC website for the meeting attendees and the GDISC National Contact Points.

Warm welcome from the Swiss Secretariat!

The Swiss GDISC Secretariat wishes you all a happy new year! We are excited to further develop GDISC together with you and we are looking forward to meeting many of you at some point during the next two years.

GDISC Members

During their Presidency of the EU in July 2004, the Netherlands held a Conference in Rotterdam titled ‘Immigration Services Together in the New Europe’. The Conference was aimed at General Directors of European Immigration Services. During this conference it was concluded that there was added value in face-to-face contact with European counterparts and the General Directors agreed to meet every year. A network was established in order to facilitate practical cooperation. This network was named GDISC: General Directors’ Immigration Services Conference.
