Description: Since its
publication in 2004, the IOM Glossary on Migration continues to meet its
objectives in being a valuable tool for practitioners, government
migration officials, students and others and has been effectively
utilized in regional and international fora discussing migration issues.
However, even at the time of its initial publication, we recognized
that it was a first attempt, with room for improvement, revisions of
definitions and additions of terms. In the Foreword to the 2004 edition,
we alluded to the possibility of a subsequent, more complete, edition.
We are pleased now to be able to introduce a second edition of the IOM
Glossary on Migration which we consider to be more comprehensive and
which takes into account invaluable input from users of the glossary.
Great care has been taken in revising and adding definitions and an
effort has been made to streamline definitions to ensure consistency
with partner organizations who have, since IOM’s publication, also
issued glossaries on migration and related topics.
It is IOM’s hope that this improved edition will continue to move the
international community toward a common language when discussing
migration issues. Uniformity of usage of terms serves to greatly enhance
research and statistics gathering, and the exchange of information
between and among States. Mutual understanding of critical terms is
therefore an important first step in achieving coordinated responses to
the challenges of global migration.
