Migration outlook 2023: ten migration issues to look out for in 2023 - origins, key events and priorities for Europe
The EU could see an influx of up to four million more Ukrainians in 2023, and Russia will seek to further weaponise migration from North Africa and the Middle East. These are just two of the forecasts made in the latest Migration Outlook report 2023 from the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD). 7.9 million Ukrainians have fled to Europe since the Russian invasion in February 2022. 4.9 million registered under the EU’s Temporary Protection scheme or similar schemes in other European countries. ICMPD’s latest Migration Outlook report predicts that those who arrived last year will begin to enter the EU job market in higher numbers in 2023, after temporary protection has been extended until March 2024.
