Migration Management Diploma Programme (MMDP)


The Migration Management Diploma Programme (MMDP) is a three-month course designed for practitioners and civil servants working in the field of migration and/or asylum run by UNU-MERIT/School of Governance. The programme aims to build capacity of those working in the field of migration but is also available to those who would like to upgrade their knowledge in the field. The programme includes three courses:

  1. Introduction to migration trends, policies and legal frameworks
  2. Migration and development
  3. Migration policy design​

Classes within MMDP are provided by world renowned scholars and practitioners on a range of issues relating to migration. Moreover the MMDP aims to provide a platform for networking through field trips across Europe including a tour of Dutch Ministries in The Hague, EU institutions in Brussels, the UN and other intergovernmental agencies in Geneva, and Schiphol airport.

MMDP scholarships are only offered to government officials from low, lower-middle and upper-middle income countries working in the field of migration and/or asylum. The programme is also open to practitioners and students interested in migration issues that do not qualify for scholarships on a self-paid basis.

Applications are welcomed from professionals and civil servants, in all countries, who are working on or interested in migration management. The application deadline is 7 July 2019.
