What will drive global migration in 2035? What will be the main changes in future migration patterns and trends? How will and should key migration stakeholders - including governments, international organizations, the private sector, and civil society - respond to future migration to achieve positive development outcomes? This panel presents the findings from the International Migration Institute’s Global Migration Futures project that uses an innovative scenario methodology, traditionally used in the private sector, to develop a comprehensive perspective on future international migration.
