Chapter Summary

The Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX) began as a pilot project in 2004 and expanded in 2007 to establish a reliable biannual standard-setting and monitoring tool for governmental integration policies. This chapter briefly explains the construction of the MIPEX and its methodology. It specifies the adopted and proposed legal instruments that informed the selection of MIPEX strands, dimensions, indicators, and answer options. The chapter explains how legal provisions were turned into numbers enabling quantitative comparisons by taking readers through the example of the family reunion policy strand. MIPEX can be used to monitor policy developments as a result of domestic change, the transposition of European directives, or ratification of international conventions, for pointing to the necessity to address important issues for immigrants and for bringing policies more in line with international human rights standards and equality principles.

Keywords: equality standards; European integration standards; family reunion policy; Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX)
