Measuring well-governed migration The 2016 Migration Governance Index

Jointly implemented with the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), the project involves the development of a policy-benchmarking framework to assess the extent to which national migration policies facilitate orderly, safe and well managed migration, as laid out in SDG Target 10.7.

The framework is composed of over 70 indicators grouped under 5 different dimensions of migration governance, and draws upon the MiGOF categories. Research was conducted in 15 pilot countries, the results of which were released on 2 May, 2016 at IOM HQ in Geneva and 3 May, 2016 at GMDAC in Berlin.

The aim is to replicate this initial exercise in a larger number of countries during a second phase of the project.
