Migration in an ageing Europe: What are the challenges?

Abstract

We use new migration modelling and projection techniques in order to quantify the effect of migration in the context of ageing societies in Europe over the forthcoming decades. Using new empirical results, data and projections of migration flows developed in the framework of the WWWforEUROPE project, we inform the policy discussion concerning the role of demographic change, inequality dynamics, labour market integration of migrants and the sustainability of public finances in the continent. Contribution to the Project This policy paper uses the migration modelling efforts developed in WWWforEUROPE in order to assess the future challenges in terms of migration policy for Europe. We use new data and projections employing demographic scenarios and draw conclusions about the role of demographic and migration developments for the sustainability of public finances in Europe, putting special emphasis on policy responses in the framework of aging societies.
