MIPEX highlighted as the most notable global tool to measure the degree of migrants’ inclusion in certain countries and rank these countries according to the effectiveness of their inclusion policies. In particular, the new MIPEX Health Strand offers a survey instrument designed to investigate the degree to which policies affect migrant health and promote equity, allowing for comparison between different country contexts. A scoping review of available evidence on the association between health outcomes and integration policies conducted in 2017b showed a majority of studies included MIPEX as a measure of national migrant integration policies. Data showed that health disparities between migrants and citizens, and between migrant groups, were generally reduced in countries with a strong integration policy.
Based on MIPEX, IOM concludes
The adoption of holistic inclusion policies has the potential to improve the effectiveness of policy responses in the field of inclusion
More inclusive policy responses in a wide range of related policy areas leads to deeper and more sustainable inclusion outcomes
