Using scenarios to challenge assumptions and to think long-term about global migration
What if Europe ceases to be a major destination for migrants? What if industries and services begin to move, rather than people? What if the effect of environmental change on international migration is more complex than we thought? These are just some of the questions arising out of a recent workshop organised as part of IMI’s Global Migration Futures project. The project explores how migration dynamics may evolve in the years up to 2050, based on a thorough understanding of past and current migration trends.
