The International Organization for Migration (IOM) conducts and supports data production and research designed to guide and inform migration policy and practice.
Data production and research are designed to enhance IOM’s programme delivery and contribute to a broader understanding of migration patterns and processes, as well as the links between migration research and migration policy and practice. Research also feeds directly into IOM’s role as a publisher of applied research findings, including through IOM’s flagship publication, the World Migration Report, papers published in the Migration Research Series, and IOM Migration Profiles.
