Migration and inequality present tremendous challenges to policy makers and academics at national, regional and global levels. Unfortunately the evidence base is severely lacking in this field and there is an urgent need to improve the coverage, quality and timeliness of migration data, analysis and reporting for policy. In the context of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development this challenge also demands an equally sustainable, collaborative response from international organisations, governments, statisticians and the academic community.
This seminar will address the significant efforts to improve data which have been undertaken, as well as the reasons for continued shortfalls. The discussion will consider possible strategies to meet these current and future challenges.
This event is part of the Data and inequality interest group.
