Understanding migration mobility patterns: elaborating mid and long-term migration scenarios
Proposals should explore patterns, motivations and modalities of migration, with a focus on new geographies and temporalities (e.g.international demand for and supply of labour, sector policies in countries of origin and destination, aging population in industrialised countries, demographic trends in countries of origin, migration propensity, transnational networks, the impact of corruption, shifting representations of Europe, temporary migration and return (both voluntary and forced) and forced movements linked to conflicts, environment-related threats, other relevant geopolitical factors, international development and regional policies, as well as livelihood opportunities, including the analysis of the movement of third country nationals among the various regions of the EU.
The action will enhance the knowledge base on migration-related flows, drivers, attitudes and behaviours in qualitative and quantitative terms (including improving statistical data and methods in cooperation with national statistical institutes, relevant organisations and Eurostat). Scenarios and projections will inform evidence-based governance and regulatory frameworks at international and EU levels as well as relevant sector policies in EU Member States, e.g. social, health, education and labour market related policies and the impact on welfare policies and public social security systems.
