THESIM

Towards Harmonised European Statistics on International Migration
First Edition

This book provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive picture available of statistical data sources on international migration and asylum in the European Union (EU). The intention is to provide a handbook which will support the work of data suppliers in the EU Member States and that of Eurostat to produce reliable, harmonised and comparable data on migration and asylum in the EU. It also aims to complement the statistical work of the United Nations' Population and Statistical Divisions (UNPD and UNSD) and that of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

The book is intended to be a resource for data suppliers and policy makers in activities to implement the EU Regulation on Community statistics on migration and international protection as well as for all users of these statistics, whether policy makers, statisticians, journalists, students, researchers, lawyers, NGOs or interested members of the public.

This book results from the THESIM Project, a 6th Framework Research Project financed by DG Research (EU). It represents the latest effort of the European Commission to improve the quality, coverage and comparability of international migration in Europe and to create the basis of a system for the production of Community statistics on migration and asylum. It is an example of how the academic community, national officials and EU policy makers can develop strong collaborative working links and take action to improve the current situation and to support policy decisions.
