The Migrant Integration Policy Index is an international migration policy index computed by the Migration Policy Group, Brussels and the Barcelona Centre for International Affairs. The project conducts a complete review of integration outcomes, policies, and beneficiaries for major destination countries around the world, including Europe, North America, and Australia. As a part of this, India Migration Now presents the first edition of MIPEX India in 2020
India is a unique country for migrants, worldwide. Not only is it the source of the highest number of international migrants (17 million as per the World Migration Report, 2020), it is also a prominent destination country for immigrants, particularly from Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, and Pakistan. While mobility agreements with Nepal exist, a majority of immigrants are vulnerable and require equal access to social and economic infrastructure. Given the importance of India as a destination country, it is important to assess the nature of integration policy for immigrants in India.
MIPEX utilises aggregated scores across 163 vital policy indicators to assess a country’s performance on a number of matters including Labour Market, Education, Access to Nationality, Family Reunion, Health, and Political Participation.
