Migration Governance Indicators Profile 2023 | Democratic Republic of the Congo

Also available in:

This Migration Governance Indicators (MGI) profile presents a summary of well-developed areas of migration governance in the Democratic Republic of Congo as well as areas with potential for further development, as assessed through the MGI process. The MGIs are a standard set of almost 100 indicators to help countries assess the comprehensiveness of their migration governance structures.

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 MGIs aim to help governments, upon request, take stock of their migration policies and strategies to identify good practices and areas with potential for further development.

The MGIs open dialogues with governments and other relevant stakeholders to identify priorities on the way forward. With a focus on government ownership of the process, the MGIs offer support at the national and local levels to gradually improve migration management systems.
