Asia–Pacific Migration Data Report 2022

The Asia–Pacific Migration Data Report 2022 is a comprehensive collection and analysis of the latest available migration data, offering valuable insights into the observed trends throughout 2022. While the COVID-19 pandemic is no longer the primary driver of migration, its repercussions have left lasting indirect consequences that persistently shape migration patterns and migrants’ experiences across the Asia–Pacific region. The year 2022 also saw renewed commitments to addressing new challenges that arise during the transition to post-pandemic conditions.

In its third edition, the report consolidates its position as the flagship publication for the Asia–Pacific region since 2020. The report is structured around the six core thematic pillars of the IOM Asia–Pacific Regional Data Hub, including Migration Statistics, Types of Migration, Migration and Vulnerability, Migration and Development, Migration Policy and Migration and Innovation, providing a holistic framework for understanding the multifaceted nature of migration in the region.

A notable feature of this edition is the inclusion of insights from migration experts who have shared invaluable perspectives on key migration topics. Finally, the report reviews progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration and the Migration Governance Indicators. It also provides recommendations to strengthening the evidence-based migration governance in the region.
