Uncertainty in Future Migration Flows: Where Does It Come From?
- Evidence needs to be injected into the decision and policy processes related to migration from the outset, as a way to ensure preparedness for future migration trends.
- The future of migration trends should ideally be assessed for different types of migration separately. It is crucial to take into account the role played by policies and administrative procedures in shaping migration flows.
- More collaboration and dialogue between stakeholders is necessary to improve coordination mechanisms for better migration data provision.
