Main Report: Relevant Data to Understand Migration in the EU

November 4, 2019


For all the scrutiny of immigration into the European Union from elsewhere, the monitoring of movements happening within the EU is surprisingly rudimentary. Yet, the consequences of the right to free movement in the EU for countries of origin and destination and their respective societies, labour markets, and social systems cannot be effectively discussed without having a good understanding of the patterns and dynamics of intra-EU migration in the first place. This report aims to assess the extent to which this is possible based on existing data. It provides a review of presently-existing data sources on migration between Member States and aims to map the main patterns and dynamics of migration within the EU28.
