“Measuring Good Migration Governance with an Indicator Approach”, Francesco Pasetti and Elaine Lebon-McGregor (CIDOB, Barcelona)

The AdMiGov indicators offer policy makers, academics, and other interested stakeholders an innovative and evidence-based tool to measure and assess good migration governance. These indicators build upon and complement existing knowledge in the field of migration policy indicators (e.g., MGI, MIPEX) and have been informed by empirical insights from the AdMiGov fieldwork. Indicator construction followed a holistic approach to migration governance, examining its main areas (entry, exit, temporary and circular mobility), elements (actions, actors and resources) and stages (formulation, promulgation, implementation and evaluation). The result is a set of 68 indicators that can be applied to evaluate national migration governance systems, allowing its users to assess a country’s alignment with international standards on protection and sustainable development, to identify areas in need of development and to identify potential best practices. Beyond constructing the tool, the report also presents preliminary insights into how the indicators can be applied by drawing on data concerning the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey.
