IOM World Migration Report 2013: How Migrants Rate Their Well-Being
IOM’s World Migration Report 2013: Migrant Well-Being and Development was presented by Gervais Appave, Special Policy Advisor to the Director General of IOM, at a well-attended meeting in The Hague on 3 December 2013. In this year’s Report, IOM presents for the first time a global picture of the well-being of migrants.
The Report investigates how migration leads or does not lead to a better life; how satisfied migrants are with their lives compared to the local population; if they find it more difficult to find jobs or start a business; and if they are more likely to report health problems. Migrants are given a unique opportunity to tell their own stories. The World Migration Report was commented on by a special panel including Katie Kuschminder from Maastricht University, Mesfin Aman representing the African Diaspora Policy Centre, Hans Sandee from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, André Westerink from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment and Jasper Hoogendoorn representing the Ministry of Security and Justice.
