OECD, IOM and UNDESA organise the first International Forum on Migration Statistics

OECD, IOM and UNDESA (represented by UNSD and UNPD) will co-organise a regular International Forum on Migration Statistics (IFMS-2018). 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.

The IFMS-2018 will include between 15 and 20 parallel sessions in addition to plenary sessions with high-level experts. You can contribute to the Forum by submitting a paper or by organizing a session. Click here for more information or view below
