Data Bulletin: Informing a Global Compact for Migration (GCM)

About the Data Bulletin

"Data Bulletin: Informing a Global Compact for Migration", launched by IOM’s Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC), aims to summarize in an accurate and accessible fashion the existing evidence on migration to support the discussions and any follow-up activities of a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

As part of the project “Support to IOM for the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration,” funded by the European Union, Data Bulletins outline the strengths and limitations of relevant migration data, and highlight innovative data practices which are pertinent to a global compact for migration. Data Bulletins reflect the collaborative nature of a global compact for migration process by including relevant contributions from different parts of IOM as well as other agencies and migration experts.
