What does international immigration to the EU countries looks like in 2030?  How could different scenarios affect future immigration flows to the EU? The International Organization for Migration’s Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC), in close coordination with the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI-KNAW), consulted 178 migration experts before COVID-19. Explore the data ahead of the release of the study. Here are some key findings.
