    Integrated Demographic Estimation and Forecasting


    International migration is one of the most uncertain components of population change and a top-priority area for policy. The aim of the project is to develop a ground-breaking simulation model of international migration, based on a population of intelligent, cognitive agents, their social networks and institutions, all interacting with one another. We want to change the way in which migration is understood, predicted, and managed by effectively integrating behavioural and social theory with modelling. Find out more on the project website.
