The Displacement Tracking Matrix(DTM) is a system to track and monitor displacement and population mobility. It is designed to regularly and systematically capture, process and disseminate information to provide a better understanding of the movements and evolving needs of displaced populations, whether on site or en route.
Conceptualized in 2004 in Iraq, for the IDP assessments and monitoring exercises, the DTM has been continuously refined and enhanced through years of operational experience in countries in both conflict and natural disaster settings. It delivers essential role in providing primary data and information on displacement, both in country and at the global level.

Policy and Research Papers
Building from individual interviews with young people from the fadas and palais and members of the local population, this study reveals the influence of the violent extremist ideology on young people from Zinder. They often get a rudimentary or indirect knowledge of Islam, through relatives or the Internet. They are also exposed to radical religious messages that are spread through social networks, traded or sold on CDs and USB drivers on the local market or through informal networks. In addition, charismatic religious leaders are supporting the spread of a rigorist and violent vision of the religion through regional preaching. The mosques and Koranic schools are playing a key role in the dissemination of these ideas, as the religious speech became tougher, and is now affecting more than just the religious aspect.
Thus, the study reveals that these messages and sermons are playing an important role in the knowledge and attraction young people have for actions led by extremist groups like Boko Haram. Furthermore, a significant number of young people have a positive vision of these actions, which they justify as acts of defiance towards a system perceived as unfair, as the State policies are not supporting people’s aspirations and are viewed as inadequate. Violence is perceived as a means of
pressure and assertion against a State seen as a repressive entity, while the religion is perceived as the only tool available for social regulation. In Zinder, where there are several religious movements, the study noticed the rise of the izala Salafists, a religious group opposed to the traditional Islam practiced in Niger and close to the Sufis and Malekites.

The 2017 publication “Tomorrow’s World of Migration and Mobility" is the outcome of the joint migration future scenario building initiative pursued in 2016-2017 in a partnership among IOM, the Friedrich-Ebert Stiftung and the Geneva based NGO Global Futures. It builds on the recommendations of the 2015 IOM-CSO Annual Consultations in Geneva for IOM to continue working with civil society on exploring ‘the future of migration’, to pursue longer-term thinking on migration challenges beyond the current focus on emergencies, in recognition that simple forecasting and projections of what migration may look like in the future can be challenging and inaccurate. Four independent scenario teams were brought together including participants from civil society, academia, migrants and others drawn from different regions of the world to consider over the course of 18 months, what possible migration scenarios may arise by 2030. The ensuing scenarios were drawn up independently through workshops, webinars and interviews with salient personalities.
