Migration Governance Indicators Second Profile 2022 | Republic of Kenya

The Second Profile of Migration Governance Indicators (MGI) of the Republic of Kenya presents a summary of the main changes and achievements that have taken place in the migration governance structures in the country since the first assessment in 2018, as well as the areas with potential for further development, as assessed by the MGI. The MGI is a standard set of approximately 90 indicators to assist countries in assessing their migration policies and advance the conversation on what well-governed migration might look like in practice.

The incorporation of Sustainable Development Goal target 10.7 into the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development created the need to define “planned and well-managed migration policies”. In 2015, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) developed the Migration Governance Framework (MiGOF). The Framework offers a concise view of an ideal approach that allows a State to determine what it might need to govern migration well and in a way that suits its circumstances. 

In an effort to operationalize the MiGOF, IOM worked with Economist Impact to develop the MGI. 

The MGI helps countries identify good practices as well as areas with potential for further development. The MGI takes stock of migration-related policies in place and operates as a benchmarking framework that offers insights into policy measures that countries might want to consider as they progress towards good migration governance.
