Societies increasingly face the challenges of managing vital migration flows and integrating migrants in the context of below-replacement fertility, slow population aging, and sudden crises or shocks. The role of demographic science in the study of migration has received relatively limited attention. It is mainly because of a lack of adequate data that are necessary to test migration theories and to develop new ones. The rapid spread of information and communication technologies and the increase in computing power have opened up new opportunities for breakthroughs to be made in the study of migration and mobility.   Detailed Description
