The European Commission's Atlas of Migration is an online repository compiling migration data from both UN and non-UN sources (World Bank, UNDP, UNHCR, UNDESA, etc.). This resource may be helpful to anyone needing data on demographics, types of migrants, remittances, asylum seekers & refugees, and more for virtually all recognized countries in the world. EU27 countries even have all of their data standardized by Eurostat so comparisons between countries are possible.

Routed Magazine is a not-for-profit online publication on migration and (im)mobility. We seek to bridge the divide between specialist academic literature on human mobility and popular portrayals of migration in the media, bringing a fresh, critical perspective to the study of how and why people move.
