Abstract

Migrations and refugees are a global phenomenon. People migrate from their country or region for many reasons, including to seek out economic opportunities, or to escape from atrocities or disasters. These migrants and refugees face various challenges at the destination countries due to language barriers, cultural differences, and social acceptance. The NGO Committee on Migration (CoM) has been established to form a coalition of organizations worldwide that advocate, educate, and collaborate to encourage the promotion and protection of migrants and their human rights, in accordance with the United Nations Charter. The NGOs operate in different parts of the world, and the information on their migrant trends and support activities are to be shared for better coordination and collaborative governance or for identifying high priority policy issues. This paper presents the visual analytics approach to support the NGOs around the globe to better understand and govern the NGO activities and migration trends, and to monitor international migration policy issues.
