The European Commission has just unveiled a vision on trends in migration and multi-culturalism.

It has been developed as part of the Futurium project, the experimental platform created by the European Commission to facilitate a broad reflection on future European policies.

This theme explores evolving trends across two distinct but interrelated areas of socio-cultural behaviour: migration (and the act of immigration this entails) and multiculturalism. Migration and multiculturalism are key factors in social change and development especially in relation to the unique ‘laboratory’ a supranational institution such as the EU represents.
