Call for papers

In the last twenty years, social and political interest in international migration has grown considerably. As a consequence of this interest a growing number of actors and institutions have become involved in the production of knowledge and analysis on migration issues. Beyond states and the academic community, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), international actors (such as international and intergovernmental organisations), as well as ‘experts’ or think tanks, are fuelling research and debates on migration today.

On a panel on Measuring well-managed migration policies (SDG target 10.7), John Wilmoth, UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), cited the need for an SDG indicator for each of six domains for measuring target 10.7: institutional capacity and policy; labor migration; recruitment cost; migrant rights; international partnerships, and humanitarian crises. He expressed concern about the lack of an indicator to measure migrants' integration in society, within the proposed global indicator framework to be considered by the UN Statistical Commission. Leo Abruzzese, The Economist Intelligence Unit, said is essential for countries that receive migrants to conduct labor market audits and skills assessment. Robert Kirkpatrick, Director, UN Global Pulse, underlined the need to use Big Data for monitoring migration.
