International Forum on Migration Statistics 2018

Several TEMPER project team members participated last week in the first International Forum on Migration Statistics (IFMS), organized by the OECD, IOM and UNDESA. The IFMS aims to mobilise expertise that can contribute to improve global understanding of the migration phenomenon and it provides a unique opportunity for policy-makers to get in direct contact with migration data experts.

Information on the forum is available in the link below, including videos of the Plenary Sessions and some selected Parallel sessions.
