This policy paper outlines key recommendations for policy-makers on ways to prevent migrants from going missing and, when they do, how to respond to the problem.

It highlights the need to standardize how information about missing migrants and dead bodies is collected and processed in line with international rules and standards, and establish clear humanitarian pathways for collaboration at national and transnational levels, including with families.

The paper also highlights the challenges facing families of missing migrants and outlines ways to support them, including throughout the search process.
