Where to find data on migration?
Melissa Siegel, professor of migration studies at the Maastricht School of Governance and UNU-MERIT, presents, in a short video made available by the Migration Data Portal, some of the available databases on migration and remittances.

In addition to this video, other articles relevant to the study of migration are also available on the Migration Data Portal, namely "Migrant stocks vs. migrant flows", "Classifying and defining migrants for statistics" and "Collecting migration data: administrative vs. survey data".
