International Migration Drivers

International Migration Drivers

Why do people migrate? Through an extensive analysis of international data, the event shines new light on this question by showing which factors are the most important drivers of migration flows around the world. Doing so contributes to preparing effectively for a future in which international migration will continue to be a significant issue for European and global policymaking, and to putting international initiatives like the upcoming Global Compact for Migration into practice.
