On 29 September, two members of ITFLOWS, Tobias Heidland (IfW) and Andre Gröger (UAB), participated in the National EMN Conference 2020 “Forecasting the Future of Global Migration” in Austria.
The National EMN Conference, organised in partnership with IOM’s Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC), provided an overview of existing models, studies and tools to predict different developments in migration, including their underlying assumptions and key results. The conference further outlined how migration predictions can best inform policy and how policy makers can make use of predictive methodologies. By exploring the extent to which predictive methods have been used to inform policy decisions, the conference contributed to the future of policy relevant migration forecasting, developing synergies between research, policy, and practitioners. Finally, the implications of forecasts and scenarios for national and European policy making were discussed.
