We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Launched on the occasion of International Migrants Day, a new Atlas from the Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography provides insights on migration for all EU Member States and 44 non-EU countries.
With graphs, charts and maps, the Atlas of Migration provides a snapshot of migration in 2017, providing a knowledge base for policy makers, stakeholders, businesses, researchers and the general public.
The publication presents the available data on a range of migration-related fields in a format that is both easy to access and to understand..

The Atlas is structured around three sections, each with a distinct focus:
A set of online resources accompanying the book will be made available in early 2019, allowing for interactive exploration of its data.
With better and broader global data in the future and the visual presentation approach adopted in the Atlas, the Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography hopes to build a more complete picture of migration around the world.
