Core Dataset for the Search for Missing Migrants
One of the most significant obstacles encountered in the search for missing migrants is the lack of compatibility of data gathered by different actors. This dataset has been formulated as a means to harmonize data collection efforts by establishing a number of shared data fields that can be completed to aid the search for a missing migrant, whether living or dead. It is a basis upon which different organizations/authorities may adapt their data collection according to their context, needs, resources and mandate. As such, the dataset can serve either as a point of reference for actors already engaged in data collection, to ensure that their efforts are compatible with those of others, or as core content for a new data collection form.
