 ‌International Forum on Migration Statistics

The first International Forum on Migration Statistics (IFMS) took place in Paris at the OECD headquarters on 15 and 16 January 2018. This 2-day event showcased the most innovative research and initiatives to measure population mobility and generate timely statistics. More than 150 experts, high-level policy-makers, and representatives from civil society exchanged ideas on data innovations to improve the understanding of the global migration phenomenon and support policy evaluations. This unique Forum, co-organised by the OECD, IOM and UNDESA, also created synergies between all stakeholders and perspectives, with representatives from 'origin', ‘transit’ and 'host' countries of migrants.
