Get 2021 reference book 2022 version COMING SOON!
Migration is a priority topic for the EU. It is a complex issue, which comes with opportunities and challenges. Understanding migratory movements and how they evolve over time is essential for effective migration management.
By making global migration data easy to access and use, the Atlas of Migration guides policymakers, researchers and the general public through the complexities of international migration.
The 2022 edition also includes a thematic section, which provides new insights on the displacement from Ukraine following Russia’s aggression.
The online tool accompanies the printed Atlas of Migration, and provides continuously updated data, visualised in the form of interactive charts.
- Worldwide coverage of data for 198 countries and territories: 27 EU Member States and 171 non-EU countries and territories
- Overviews for continents and sub-continental regions, including the EU27_2020 as a whole
- Data presented in individual country profiles with an introductory summary and visualisations across five sub-sections (Population and migration; Legal migration; Irregular migration; Inclusion and social conditions; Education and labour market)
- Harmonised, validated global data from 15 international sources referenced within the tool
