Data Bulletin 18: Data protection

This Data Bulletin focuses on Data protection – The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) calls for the collection and dissemination of quality data and that the objectives contained in it relating to data collection, disclosure and use should be implemented “while upholding the right to privacy and protecting personal data.”

IOM’s “Data Bulletin Series: Informing the Implementation of the Global Compact for Migration” spans a broad range of topics covered by the Global Compact for Migration, highlighting currently available data sources as well as data gaps and challenges relevant to each of them. Each Data Bulletin contains illustrative examples of initiatives and recommendations of investments needed to strengthen the evidence base underpinning the respective thematic area. The Data Bulletins are meant to provide a useful resource for decision makers as they begin to think about implementation of the Global Compact for Migration and the related data needs.
