Predictive AI technologies for migration governance: An ITFLOWS EUMigraTool Symposium

When: 16 September 2021, 11:00 – 13:00 CEST

Format: Virtual – Zoom

International migration governance, increasingly a policy priority, is a complex field involving multiple actors across multi-level global migration networks.

Predictive artificial intelligence (AI) technologies have been identified as a promising new set of tools to anticipate and manage future migration flows. The feasibility of AI-driven predictive tools require extensive assessment with regards their effectiveness in real world conditions, as well as consideration of their scope of use, ethics and legal compliance.

The Horizon 2020 ITFLOWS (IT tools and methods for managing migration FLOWS) project is developing its own AI-based predictive tool, the “EUMigraTool” (EMT). In support of this, we proudly host the EUMigraTool Symposium, which will consist of discussions and debate on predictive AI technology and migration management.

The symposium will start with an introduction of the ITFLOWS project and the EUMigraTool, followed by presentations from the DG HOME (European Commission) on EU border management research and feasibility of AI forecasting tools for migration in the EU. The second part of the event will be a debate by top experts on the role of predictive AI technologies for migration governance, followed with some closing remarks by the REA (European Commission) and final words by CEPS.  

 Participation to this event is free and open to the public. It seeks to gather researchers, experts, members of the civil society and officials from the European Commission to discuss the role of AI and predictive technologies in migration governance. 

To Register: Send an email with you name/surname(s), email and institution to by 13 September 2021. Link and further specifics will be provided upon registration.
