Migrant integration Policy index 2015 – MIPEX 2015 collects the results of the research project ‘MIPEX 2015 Migrant Integration Policy Index’ . The study compared the policies in the fields of immigration and migrant integration across 38 countries. The research included all the European Union countries, plus Australia, Canada, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey and the United States.
MIPEX examined – through 114 indicators of policies and administrative practices – 8 different areas related to integration: the labor market, family reunification, education, health care, political participation, access to citizenship, permanent residence and anti-discrimination.
The MIPEX research Index has become along the years a well-know and widely used tool to compare the effective implementation of integration policies across different countries.
The 2015 edition of MIPEX was jointly organized by CIDOB (Barcelona Centre for International Affairs) and MPG (Migration Policy Group). The ISMU Foundation participated as representative and coordinator of the survey for Italy.
