Chapter 12 is concerned with OECD activities related to migration. As experiences and challenges linked to international movements vary considerably across member countries, the activities of the OECD have to meet diverse demands. Originally, migration was a topic for the OECD as a tool to tackle labor shortages. More recently, the impact of migration on development, and therefore its importance for cooperation with non‐member economies, has increased, and new coherent policies are needed to exploit this potential. The lack of appropriate integration policies in the past has created considerable social problems in several countries and a growing need for in‐depth analyses and monitoring of migration trends. This chapter argues that data provision and fundamental analyses are the organization's key capacities in the field of international migration. Because migration is a highly contested and complex policy issue, the OECD's role in this field might ideally be that of the ‘trustworthy truth‐teller’.

Keywords:   migration, integration, monitoring, non‐member economies, development, policy coherence
