OIR at the annual meeting of the ‚European Network for Cross-Border Monitoring‘

Borders within Europe create special areas in their vicinity, facing common challenges and posing common issues to anyone trying to monitor them. From statistical data collection on a national basis „ending“ at the border, to datasets not being harmonised between national statistical offices to oftentimes a general lack of cooperation form authorities on either side, the difficulties are numerous. In the 'European Network for Cross-Border Monitoring', statisticians, authorities and users of data in such areas are working together to overcome some of the issues. At the annual meeting of the Network in December 2019, Roland Gaugitsch contributed with insights from our daily challenges at OIR working in cross-border areas.
