Guidelines for the Harmonization of Migration Data Management in the ECOWAS Region
Prepared by IOM's Global Migration Data Analysis Centre, these Guidelines are intended for a range of different users of migration data, such as migration researchers, policymakers, as well as national and regional experts working on migration-related mandates.
Measuring International Labour Mobility
The world is becoming more interconnected, with an acceleration in the movement of information, capital, goods, services and people across international borders. As it becomes easier to travel and work in other countries – especially in common market areas such as the European Union – the expansion of international labour mobility has become a topic of growing policy importance.
Guidance on Data Integration for Measuring Migration
Policymakers, researchers and other stakeholders need data on migrants – how many there are, their rates of entry and exit, their characteristics, and their integration into societies. These data need be comprehensive, accurate and frequently updated. There is no single source that can provide such data, but by combining several sources together it might be possible to produce the information that users need.
Data Bulletin: Informing a Global Compact for Migration (GCM)
