Project: Quantifying Migration Scenarios for Better Policy (QuantMig, H2020 870299)


Migration is complex, highly uncertain, and marked by unexpected changes. Political crises, economic downturns, and human-made or natural disasters can set large numbers of people on the move, just as we saw in 2015 – 2016 for migration from Syria and in 2022 from Ukraine. However, some political crises, such as the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan in 2021 did not bring unprecedentedly large numbers of refugees into Europe, despite concerns among policymakers at the beginning of the crisis. Migration events are impossible to predict in terms of their onset, scale, duration and in terms of how many people will return or settle in what destinations.
