Forum international de l’OCDE-OIM-UNDESA sur les statistiques migratoires 15-16 janvier 2018, Paris
Appel à communications et sessions parallèles
Forum international sur les statistiques migratoires (IFMS-2018)
L’IFMS-2018 ivse à mobiliser l’expertise d’un large éventail de disciplines – telles que les statistiques, l’économie, la démographie, la sociologie, la science géospatiale et les technologies de l’information – qui peuvent contribuer à améliorer la compréhension globale du phénomène migratoire. Le Forum explorera des moyens novateurs de mesurer la mobilité de la population et générera des statistiques en temps opportun et vise à créer des synergies entre différents acteurs et perspectives, avec des représentants des pays d’origine, des pays “de transit” et de “pays hôte”. Le Forum fournira également une occasion unique aux décideurs d’entrer en contact direct avec les experts en données de migration et d’utiliser leur expertise pour alimenter les évaluations des politiques et identifier les meilleures options politiques.
Le Forum sera organisé autour des cinq thèmes suivants: (i) Mesure des migrations (concepts, définitions, désagrégation par statut migratoire, etc.), (ii) Innovation et synthèse des sources de données (nouvelles sources et approches de la collecte des données de migration, les besoins de données en temps réel, etc.), (iii) Comprendre la migration à travers les données (écart dans les statistiques de migration, les données pour répondre aux préoccupations politiques, etc., (iv) Coopération et gouvernance des données (p. Ex. Coordination des parties prenantes, partage / échange de données, etc.) , et (v) Renforcement des capacités (p. Ex. Stratégies visant à renforcer la capacité institutionnelle, l’alphabétisation des données, l’utilisation des statistiques, etc.).
Les sujets et applications spécifiques pourraient inclure, entre autres (i) la surveillance mondiale, régionale ou nationale des flux et des stocks de migration, (ii) l’identification des caractéristiques ou des comportements des migrants, (iii) l’analyse de l’opinion publique sur la migration, (iv) l’évaluation de l’impact économique et social des migrations et des envois de fonds vers les pays d’origine, de transit ou de destination, (iv) la mesure des résultats d’intégration et de bien-être des immigrants et de leurs enfants ou (v) la mesure des indicateurs ODD liés aux migrations et aux migrants et la contribution au Global Compact on Migration.

An opportunity to contribute. Preparations for the 2017 edition of the World Public Sector Report 2017 (WPSR) are now underway. This call for contributions invites experts, scientists and researchers to contribute to the report highlighting issues, research findings or solutions. All contributions and briefs that meet the requirements of this call will be posted on the website of the 2017 WPSR, and their content will inform relevant chapters of the Report.
The report is called the World Public Sector Report, and it is published by the Division for Public Administration and Development Management of UN DESA. they hope to publish the next edition in December 2017. The report will examine how governments, public institutions and public administration can foster integrated approaches to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. The first part of the report will examine integration and its implications for the public sector through three complementary lenses: (1) horizontal integration; (2) vertical integration; and (3) engagement of all stakeholders.
The second part of the report will examine three issues more in depth: integrated approaches to international migrations; integrated approaches to health; and integration in post-conflict situations. These themes will be analysed through the lens of challenges and opportunities for public institutions, and address three dimensions of horizontal integration, vertical integration and civil society engagement.
All chapters will draw on national experiences.
Deadline for submissions is 30 August 2017

The Future of Local Government in Europe. Lessons from Research and Practice in 31 Countries
(Schwab/Bouckaert/Kuhlmann 2017, Nomos: Baden-Baden) has been published.
It is also available for free download here: https://www.nomos-elibrary.de/10.5771/9783845280639/the-future-of-local-government-in-europe
Over recent decades, local governments in Europe have come increasingly under pressure facing a multitude of old and new challenges. Consequently, a wave of political and administrative reforms aimed at coping with these pressures has changed local governance in many nations. Local governments are not only responsible for efficient administration, high-quality services and a legally correct execution of laws, but also for ensuring legitimacy, democratic participation, accountability and trust – often under the conditions of austerity. This volume presents research findings of an international project on local public sector reforms in 31 countries and derives advice for policymakers to shape the future of local governments in Europe. The authors address basic reform areas and key features of local governance like autonomy, performance and participation. The book targets academics, students and practitioners interested in (the future of) local government.
In addition, EGPA Executive Secretary, Fabienne Maron, has interviewed Prof. Sabine Kuhlmann, Chair of the Action during the COST closing session. She invites you to read the new publication on the future of Local Government in Europe and the lessons learned from this long-term project.
