NGO Committee on Migration - Survey on Migrant and Refugee Victims of Xenophobia and Intolerance in the Context of the Coronavirus Pandemic
In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NGO Committee on Migration* is distributing this survey as a follow-up to a very successful one we circulated in 2017. Our goal is to gather information on how the pandemic has affected the challenges and promising practices that you, the responding organizations, have identified in your work to reduce xenophobia and foster the social inclusion of migrants and refugees in their transit and destination countries.

In order to get the most reliable first-hand information, we ask that respondents to this survey be members of your organization who work directly with migrants and/or refugees in specific locations. All information will remain confidential, unless your organization specifically consents to having its responses publicized or shared. We would appreciate it if your organization could disseminate this survey widely among your constituent or related organizations.

A final report on the survey results will be distributed to member governments of the UN, appropriate UN Bodies, NGOs, civil society organizations and institutions that have funding and decision-making responsibilities. All survey respondents will receive a final report, while no survey respondents will be identified individually. We believe that surveys like this one, that elicit best management practices and successful initiatives in the context of this pandemic, will lead to a better understanding of the barriers to movement, gaps in services, and psychosocial factors that have hindered full integration of migrants and refugees into their host communities. The results will be compared, analyzed, and once again evaluated for significant changes in xenophobic incidents, obstacles encountered, and successful good management practices. Such surveys have helped the UN move from a prime focus on policy to one that supports grassroots initiatives with a focus on leaving no one behind.

The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete, and while changes cannot be made after it has been submitted, they can be made until then. Please submit the completed survey and any questions you may have in the course of completing it to If you feel that there is a question we have not addressed, or anything you would like to add, we welcome your input.
Thank you for taking the time and care to provide us with this essential information.
