The Migrant Integration Policy Index 2020 results for Turkey will be presented at an online event on November 23, 2020.

MIPEX is a unique tool which measures policies to integrate migrants in countries across five continents: Europe, Asia, North and South America and Oceania. This index aims to provide up-to-date, comprehensive research data and analysis on which to base policies, proposals for change and projects to achieve equality in countries. The different indicators create a rich, multi-dimensional picture of migrants’ opportunities to participate in society, reason why MIPEX focuses on 8 areas: labour market, education, family reunion, political participation, permanent residence, access to nationality, antidiscrimination, and health.
