Migration Data Management, Intelligence and Risk Analysis

IOM supports States and government agencies to shape proactive migration policies through improved migration data collection and management. Well-designed border management information systems can tremendously boost the ability of States to manage their borders and to develop evidence-based migration policies. IOM has developed its own Border Management Information System, called the Migration Information and Data Analysis System (MIDAS), a  high-quality, affordable system that can collect, process and record information for the purpose of identification of travelers, data collection and analysis. MIDAS is improving access to such technologies for States with limited resources; as such, it provides modular systems at affordable cost and solicits funding from interested donors.
