Towards an EU Policy on Migration Data

Abstract: 
Adequate data is key for evidence-informed policymaking. This report describes the initiative coordinated by the KCMD that has brought together relevant EU policy officers (from Commission DGs and services, and EU Agencies) to discuss the current state of migration data for EU policymaking and to coordinate actions intended to address some of the existing data gaps. The report first presents the European migration data landscape and then describes some approaches that are being explored to improve data adequacy.
