COMPAS held a reception marking the formal launch of the Migration Observatory.

The Migration Observatory is a multi-media platform, providing user-friendly access to authoritative and independent analysis of data on migrants and migration issues in the UK, set in an international context.

It aims to inform media, public and policy debates, and to generate high quality research on international migration and public policy issues. The Observatory will draw on the expertise of a wide range of departments and research centres at the University of Oxford.

The launch was held in London and speakers included Immigration Minister Damian Green, Guy Goodwin, Office for National Statistics and Baroness Oona King.
