    Abstract

    The United Nations University forms the academic and think tank arm of the United Nations. In recent years, the UNU has significantly increased its policy-focused migration research program. This includes the foundation of a new institute, UNU-GCM, specifically focused on migration research and the creation of a new UNU Migration Network, a cross-institute platform that brings together UNU’s considerable strengths in the filed of migration studies, as well as a greater possibility of multi-lateral communication with policy-makers. Moving forward, the UNU seeks ways to support the Secretary- General’s eight-point agenda for action through its research projects and findings, and to work together with other United Nations bodies to ensure successful integration of migration in the post-2015 United Nations Development Agenda. The UNU has the potential to act as a key player in strengthening the migration evidence base, which it sees as a fundamental part of this process.
