The Geographic Data Science Lab (GDSL) has been included in the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Research Partners Panel
We are pleased to let you know that the Geographic Data Science Lab (GDSL) has been included in the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Research Partners Panel. This means that GDSL has been assessed and verified as holding competences and expertise that may be potentially useful for IOM research activities.
IOM through its Migration Research Division has the institutional responsibility for supporting the conduct and management of applied research on salient migration topics. Research is designed to enhance IOM's programme delivery and contribute to a broader understanding of migration patterns and processes, as well as the links between migration research and migration policy and practice. Research also feeds directly into IOM’s role as a publisher of applied research findings, including through IOM's flagship publication, the World Migration Report, papers published in the Migration Research Series, and IOM Migration Profiles.
IOM frequently collaborates with academic and applied researchers in universities, research institutions and other organisations throughout the world to conduct and support this type of research. These collaborations allow IOM to benefit from the diverse knowledge and expertise of various applied researchers and scholars, and enable the organisation to reach a global audience.
The inclusion of GDSL in the IOM Research Partners Panel recognises expertise in the lab on key migration topics at the intersection of the use of new forms of data, machine learning and AI to understand global migration flows, digital hate speech against migrants and migrant integration trajectories. We are looking forward to this new chapter.
