The United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC), at its 47th session in 2016, established the Expert Group on Refugee, IDP and Statelessness Statistics (EGRISS) with the initial mandate to develop International Recommendations on Refugee Statistics (IRRS). EGRISS’ mandate was later extended to develop the International Recommendations on Internally Displaced Persons Statistic (IRIS) and a Compilers’ Manual. Currently, EGRISS is implementing its third mandate, focusing on the implementation of both sets of recommendations at national, regional and international levels as well as the development of the International Recommendations on Statelessness Statistics (IROSS). EGRISS is a multi-stakeholder group comprised by members from 45 national authorities and 25 regional and international organizations.
