The EU Pact on Migration: A New Framework for Predicting and Anticipating ‘Crises’?

 Registration is closed for this event

Predicting and addressing situations defined as ‘migration crises’ is one of the priorities laid down in the EU Pact on Migration and Asylum. The recently adopted Migration Preparedness and Crisis Blueprint aims at developing an early warning and forecasting system at the EU level, which is expected to enable enhanced preparedness and response to migration situations.

This ITFLOWS Project Webinar aims to examine the key features of the EU approach to ‘crisis anticipation and response’ based on lessons learned on how the EU addressed previously declared ‘crises’. The Webinar will focus on the broader implications of the EU crisis management system laid down in the Pact, especially in relation to the Pact’s proposal on a Crisis and Force Majeure Regulation.

The Webinar will also examine the potentials and methodological limitations of existing tools for predicting and forecasting migration. Some of the key questions that will be addressed are: What qualifies as a ‘crisis’ and how its existence is assessed? What are the deficits characterizing existing maps and visualisations of immigration dynamics in the EU? What are the ethical and legal dilemmas raised by predictive and mapping approaches based on existing state of the art literature?
