The Migration Governance Indicators (MGI) process has been rolled out in 50 countries, more than a quarter of UN Member States and almost a third of IOM Member States. This report uses data collected through the MGI to analyse trends and identify areas with potential for further development in migration governance worldwide, as countries gear up to achieve their national and international commitments related to migration.
This report constitutes a first global overview of the state of national migration governance across the world. It analyses MGI data to show and discuss policy trends in a number of policy areas that relate to migration (health, education, security and economy among others). These findings are complemented by background research to propose explanations for the trends identified and discuss their policy implications. The publication includes specific examples of good practices that can inform policy development in different countries.
