The overall objective of the Rabat Process i-Map is to facilitate intergovernmental information exchange and foster evidence-based policy making by:

  • providing an interactive, user friendly tool for policy makers to translate migration data and information into policy making.
  • providing policy makers and other migration stakeholders with regular media monitoring on migration-related news in the Rabat Process region.

Thematic Focus

The Rabat Process i-Map will focus on three thematic priorities of the current phase of the Rabat Process:

  • Evidence-based policy making
  • Border management
  • Migration in crisis situations


The Rabat Process i-Map will be available in English and French.


The Rabat Process i-Map will be launched in 2014.

In September 2013, the i-Map News Centre was extended to Central Africa and therefore covers now the entire region of the Rabat Process.

The Interactive Map on Migration (i-Map) has served
as a support instrument to intergovernmental
dialogues on migration since 2006.

Its objective is to facilitate access to and exchange
of information through a wide range of services
e.g. migration country profiles, visualisations and news.

The i-map is currently being revised and
a revamped version will be
launched in early 2017.
