Studying Migrations Routes: New data and Tools

Studying Migrations Routes: New data and Tools

16 June 2016
9.30 hrs.
Auditorium Antonianum – Sala San Francesco
Viale Manzoni, 1

By invitation only

On 16 June, the workshop "Studying Migrations Routes: New data and Tools" organized by Istat and Eurostat will be held in Rome, at Auditorium Antonianum Centre in viale Manzoni, 1. The event aims at sharing the knowledge on migration statistics, on some new ICT tools and on the possible issues related to their use.

One of the most relevant aspects of the current migration flows is their variety and complexity. Increasingly, they consist in intermediate steps and circular routes. At the same time, the receiving countries are not able to detect and foresee the paths, and, less often, to record them in some institutional dataset on migrations. Enhancements are now possible by means of some ICT tools and integration among different archives.

In this context, the Eurostat project on "Standardization and geocoding of migration flows" granted to the Italian Institute of Statistics, has focused on how it’s possible to georeference the birthplaces of each registered migrant in the residence permits database. The Conference will therefore be an opportunity to present the Italian experience in the European and international context and to promote debate on the proposed issues and used methods, as part of the constant dialogue between central and local public authorities, civil society and the scientific community.

At the end of the event a round table among researchers, statisticians and technology experts will summarize the most relevant results.

All the material presented here is available on Slideshare.
