Course: Introduction to Evidence Cafés for migration (PUB_3856_1.0)
Data or information collected primarily to support administrative processes i.e., border biometrics,
population registers, residence permit applications.
Artefacts that connect, support communication and collaboration between
different social structures and knowledge domains. A boundary object can often only enable this
as a one-way dissemination process.
Raw data without
meaning e.g. migration numbers, quotes from migrants.
Promotes and supports dialogue, reflection, and knowledge exchange as
well as providing a way of capturing those exchanges. Can be produced on paper, in a technical application, or
through a series of different resources e.g. post-it notes. The discussion
object is tailored to the specific topic needs and facilitates meaning-making
and the development of changed understandings for the group.
Departure from a
place of abode, natural home, or country for life or residence elsewhere.
Research Evidence that
is based on observation and measurement of phenomena, as directly experienced
by the researcher. The data that is collected this way can be compared against
a theory or hypothesis, but the results are still based on real life

individuals at any level of the organisation who initiate and facilitate
change. They provide a grounding for the Evidence Café in three ways:
- Support to identify a
topic relevant to the stakeholders
- Enable the
development and implementation of appropriate discussion objects for the

that stakeholders can make around the evidence (which includes personal
experiences, research data etc) that they present.
a discussion object which defines different levels of evidence analysis from
large quantities of raw data that have not been analysed to meaning attributed
for information and deeper knowledge insights and actionable know-how.
a discussion object which builds upon the evidence pyramid and represents
different types of evidence from different types of stakeholders. Rigour in the
evidence collection and analysis usually increases from; public stories, expert
reports, institutional and governmental policies and procedures, academic and
Evidence that is based upon people’s experiences and stories that are
based upon real life experiences.
Experiential stories data
Experiential accounts: evidence that is based upon people’s experiences and stories that are based upon real life experiences.
Expert interpretive analysis
Expert reviews or analytics that interpret evidence reviewing specific topics. The expertise may be framed by regulatory
standards or be framed by the individual’s expertise.

The process through which individuals become
permanent residents or citizens of another country.

collection of figures, objects, symbols and events that have been gathered from
different sources. Things like migration maps, photographs, or migrants’
everyday experience can all be considered as migration data.
aggregate numbers of migrants into or out of a country. These can either be
totals (e.g. 20,000 new migrants arrived in the UK in 2017) or could be broken
down (e.g. of the 20,000 migrants to the UK in 2017, 7,000 were from Spain).
Flows can also be ‘netted’ so that you look at the difference between those
people arriving as migrants and those leaving a country. This gives a net
migration flow which could either be positive (more arriving than leaving),
negative (more leaving than arriving) or balanced (as many leave as arrive).
