Trends and Analysis
The Migration Governance Indicators (MGI) process has been rolled out in 50 countries, more than a quarter of UN Member States and almost a third of IOM Member States. This report uses data collected through the MGI to analyse trends and identify areas with potential for further development in migration governance worldwide, as countries gear up to achieve their national and international commitments related to migration.
This report analyses good practices in migration data capacity building by looking at recent efforts by international organizations to enhance the capacity of National Statistical Systems (NSS) and other national agencies to collect, manage and disseminate official statistics on migration, thereby providing a basis for sound policymaking.
The report presents key results from a rigorous impact evaluation that assessed the impact of the Migrants as Messengers (MaM) information events in Dakar, Senegal.
The Missing Migrants Project tracks deaths of migrants and those who have gone missing along migratory routes across the globe. More than 32,000 migrants around the world have lost their lives since the project began in 2014.
The MGI is a tool developed by IOM in collaboration with the Economist Intelligence Unit, which aims at supporting voluntary governments in taking stock of their migration governance structures.
