Migration remains a top concern for EU citizens. By making global migration data easy to access and use, the Atlas of Migration 2020 addresses one of the priorities of the new European Commission for the decades to come. The Atlas of Migration brings together harmonized, up-to-date and validated data on the status of migration and demography in 27 EU Member States and 171 non-EU countries and territories.
The interactive online tool is underpinned by a continuously updated data repository and presented on a dynamic platform. It shows the latest available data, through charts which are interactive so users can make and print country/territory profiles that are shaped to their needs. The reference book presents the available data on a range of migration-related fields in a format that is easy to access and to understand. This provides a snapshot of migration around the world at a particular moment in time. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to reshape societies and economies around the world, the Atlas of Migration provides an essential resource to start understanding its implications for migration and mobility in the EU and worldwide. The third section focuses closely on the relationship between the pandemic and migration, providing some new insights and food for thought on what lies ahead. [+]
