New IMI Policy Briefing on Scenarios in Global Migration Futures project
- 25 March 2011
IMI's Global Migration Futures project has brought out a new briefing summarising results obtained from a recent online survey
Through the survey, the Global Migration Futures project team sought to gather feedback and insight on four scenarios exploring future migration patterns and trends in North Africa and Europe between now and 2035.
Some of the questions raised included:
Will improvements in technology and technological access lead to stronger and farther-reaching international networks of people, affecting state politics, economies and international mobility?
Will changing social norms and values in North Africa and Europe impact the
makeup of migrant populations?
Is there going to be increased xenophobia across North Africa and how will this affect migration policies?
How will environmental factors affect migration within and across North Africa?
