OECD, IOM and UNDESA (represented by UNSD and UNPD) propose to co-organise a regular International Forum on Migration Statistics. The first Forum will be hosted at OECD’s conference centre in Paris from 15-16 January 2018.

This event will enhance the exchange of information, promote mutual learning and facilitate cooperation among relevant stakeholders. It will bring together producers, analysts and users of migration statistics, and will create a community of interest focused on migration measurement issues. It will mobilise expertise from a wide range of disciplines - such as political science, economics, demography, development studies, migration studies, geospatial science, sociology, statistics, and information technology - that can contribute to an improved global understanding of international migration in all its dimensions.
