1) The IOM Global Human Tra= fficking Database:

Description:

=20

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is using a unique too= l to monitor the assistance and collect information on the victims of traff= icking (VoTs) it assists. The IOM global human trafficking database is a gl= obal repository of only primary data on registered victims of trafficking (= VoTs), and contains data on approximately 13,500 registered victims of more= than 80 different nationalities trafficked to more than 90 destination cou= ntries (October, 2008).

=20

It is a standardized anti-trafficking data-management tool available to = all IOM missions and is actively used throughout all regions of the world. = Containing only primary information, this unique tool specifically facilita= tes the management of the whole IOM direct assistance, movement and reinteg= ration process through a centrally managed system as well as mapping the vi= ctim's trafficking experience. The structure follows the format of the acco= mpanying IOM VoT questionnaires, used by IOM missions and partnering organi= zations involved in direct assistance, and containing a wealth of informati= on both of a quantitative and qualitative nature: the Screening Interview F= orm is intended to assess whether the individual is a victim of trafficking= and thus eligible for an IOM's assistance project; and the Assistance Inte= rview Form stands to track the nature of direct assistance given along with= documenting further details of the trafficking experience.

=20

Aims and ongoing activities:

=20

While initially designed as a case management tool for IOM counter-traff= icking direct assistance programmes, the system quickly demonstrated its ad= ded value to research. The aim of the database is to contribute to the gene= ral knowledge on trafficking in persons, trafficking trends and to help gov= ernments, research institutes as well as other institutions to better tailo= r CT policies and programmes. For more information please contact CTS-DB@io= m.int.

2) Central European Forum f= or Migration and Population Research:

=20

Aims:

=20

=E2=80=A2 Conduct research in the field of international migration stati= stics;
=E2=80=A2 Contribute to the efforts towards more reliable and = harmonised statistics on international migration.

=20

Activities planned for 2010:

=20

=E2=80=A2 Collection of metadata referring to international migration st= atistics and preparation of synthetic studies on the subject (EC Framework = 6 project "Promoting comparative research in the field of migration an= d integration in Europe" (PROMINSTAT) );
=E2=80=A2 Assembling da= ta and conducting population projections, simulations and forecasts for NUT= S2regions in 31 countries of Europe covered by ESPON mandate, based on migr= ation scenarios for these regions (DEMIFER).
=E2=80=A2 Conducting of = data collection, estimation and population forecast by ethnicity of populat= ions of the Russian Federation
=E2=80=A2 Training and teaching in the= area of international migration statistics;

3) Migration in Western and Central Africa: National Profiles fo= r Strategic Policy Development (2008-2010)

=20

Description:

=20

Policy coherence in the field of migration and development requires acce= ssible and appropriately compiled data and research findings, national poli= cy coordination, active international cooperation at the bilateral, regiona= l and global levels. The creation of Migration Profiles as outlined in the = European Commission's Communication on Migration and Development (2005) and= the Global Approach to Migration One Year on: Towards a Comprehensive Migr= ation Policy (2006) responds to these challenges through an evidence-based = approach. Migration Profiles go beyond simply compiling a statistical repor= t on migration. They also provide a framework for bringing existing informa= tion from different sources together in a structured manner at both nationa= l and regional levels and a means to identify and develop strategies to add= ress data and policy development needs. In order to be an effective informa= tion tool for policy making, Migration Profiles need to be government-owned= and updated regularly.

=20

Aims:

=20

=E2=80=A2 To enhance governmental knowledge about migration and its rela= tionship to development
=E2=80=A2 To support governments in establish= ing mechanisms for regular reporting on migration-related trends
=E2= =80=A2 To improve the use of migration information for policy development =E2=80=A2 To foster greater inter-ministerial coordination and collabo= ration with respect to data collection and policy development

=20

Ongoing Activities:
=E2=80=A2 Identifying informa= tion and capacity-building needs and developing mechanisms to address these= needs
