"Policy needs to be informed by facts: the more that is known about those who may be affected, the more realistic and achievable a policy’s goals will be. However, while there have been massive movements of people across borders in recent years, many entering the European Union (EU), there is little systematic data about them available. Most of the evidence that is available is anecdotal and journalistic; it deals primarily with the tragedies of migrants in transit rather than providing hard data on which policy-makers can base policies."
