Making the Most of Mobile Phone Data to Map Migration (workshop)

17-18 November, 2022. Boğaziçi University.

Keynote speakers: Joshua Blumenstock (Berkeley School of Information, University of California), Stefano Iacus (Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS), Harvard University), and Xavier Vollenweider (Flowminder).

This workshop gathers technical experts, computer scientists, social scientists, ethics experts, industrial stakeholders, and policymakers in a collaborative setting to share expertise and merge knowledge on using mobile phone data for migration research. One of the aims is to discuss policy implications of safely and ethically sourced mobile CDR and XDR data for tracking migration, and to establish a common language for work performed under different lenses. A coherent set of indicators, as well as best practices for reproducible research will be shared. A white paper will be produced on policy implications by the participants of the expert workshop to be shared with stakeholders.
