The International Migration Institute has adopted an alternative methodology to explore the future of migration

This approach is the key component of the Global Migrations Futures (GMF) project and builds upon some of the tools typically used in the business sector for scenario analysis. The project aims to develop comprehensive scenarios - stories about possible futures for migration.

The IMI believes that scenarios are essential as a method to understand how future global change might structurally reconfigure migration. This involves an improved ability to re-think our assumptions about migration, to identify key uncertainties, and to encourage 'out of the box' thinking. The IMI is implementing this approach following valuable advice from the Institute for Science, Innovation and Society at the University of Oxford.
