ABSTRACT
This article presents a summary of activities of the Intergovernmental Committee for European Migration (ICEM) during the thirteenth session of its Council from December 1-9, 1960 in Geneva, Switzerland. During the course of the session, delegates decided to assist the overseas resettlement of Belgians who had fled from the Congo. The ambassador of the Union of South Africa announced that his country had already admitted Belgian refugees, and the Argentine delegate said that his government had issued a special decree to permit the entry of Belgians. On December 5, Ferdinando Storchi, the Italian undersecretary of state for foreign affairs, called on the Council to evolve a new migration policy based on recognition of the economic and social evolution that had taken place in member countries since ICEM's foundation. Other business conducted at the session included the admission of Bolivia as a member nation and the receipt of the United Kingdom's application for membership.
