The first regular International Forum on Migration Statistics will be hosted by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and co-organized with the International Organization on Migration (IOM) and the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA). The Forum's location will rotate among the three co-organizing agencies.
The event will aim to enhance the exchange of information, promote mutual learning and facilitate cooperation among relevant stakeholders. It will bring together producers, analysts and users of migration statistics, and will create a community of interest focused on migration measurement issues. It will mobilize expertise from a wide range of disciplines – such as political science, economics, demography, development studies, migration studies, geospatial science, sociology, statistics, and information technology – that can contribute to an improved global understanding of international migration in all its dimensions.
