CIM is jointly run by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the German Federal Employment Agency. It has been providing a combination of development and labour market policy expertise since 1980.
The Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM):
Sources and places European experts – and others experts from outside Europe who have settled in Germany – in developing countries and emerging economies;
Offers a network for those who have migrated to Germany and who wish to support development in their country of origin;
Advises individuals and policy-makers on migration issues.
Their main client is the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). They also receive commissions from other German federal ministries, international organisations and the European Union.
CIM stands for expertise on international labour mobility and migration. They believe that the expertise acquired by individuals (individual expertise) offers tremendous potential for development – whether through their placement services, networks or advisory services. In the right place and at the right time, just one person can provide the momentum needed to bring about crucial changes and pave the way for innovation. Hence their motto: ‘One person can make a difference’.
All their work is guided by global development goals (sustainable development goals SDG?). They aim to promote the positive impact of migration and global labour mobility in order to improve the prospects of people living in developing countries and emerging economies.
