In addition to membership, IMISCOE also connects to other networks in the field of migration studies, by engagement via associations. The criteria for associations with IMISCOE are the following:

  • Associations should usually not involve any financial contribution from IMISCOE.
  • If contributions are to be made from IMISCOE, these should be specified in the association agreement, have to be reviewed on an annual basis by the Board of Directors, and should be accompanied by contributions to the annual reports of IMISCOE on what the association has delivered.
  • An association with IMISCOE does not mean that the partner organisation/network can use the IMISCOE brand for everything; it can only be used with reference to those activities where a direct collaboration with IMISCOE is made.
  • The IMISCOE brand can be used in case an association means the creation of a shared network/group in between IMISCOE and the partner organisation/network.

Currently, IMISCOE is associated to the EuroMediterranean Network, Sirius and with the Western Balkan Migration Network.
