HumMingBird: STUDYING MIGRATION PATTERNS

Posted on Posted in NEWS

European Network of Migrant Women is pleased to partner in a new project HumMingBird, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme and coordinated by the University of Leuven.

The project’s overall aim is to improve understandings of changing nature of migration flows and the drivers of migration, toanalyse patterns and motivations and new geographies and to calculate population estimates and determine emergingtrends and future trends and accordingly identify possible future implications of today’s policy decisions. Moreover, we aim todevelop migration scenarios in a more forward-looking manner that takes into account both quantitative and qualitativeperspectives of different migration actors impact people’s decisions to migrate and trends from that will have an impact onour societies. Global scenarios will base on not only a realistic understanding of the drivers and dynamics of migration, butalso on the effects and effectiveness of past migration policies. Projects ambitions are to identify the uncertainties and reappraise, to explore the reasons why migration predictions may not hold and to demonstrate non-traditional data sources for migration research.

The project commenced in December 2019 and will last four years.
