Trends in Forced Migration

CSIS Backgrounder

Global forced migration has important security, environmental, economic, political, and human rights implications that could lead to future global instability. Future trends in forced migration show increasing and deepening issues with significant global consequences. Although this phenomenon is disproportionately challenging the developing world, its implications are global. CSIS explored these implications in detail in its May 2018 report "Confronting the Global Forced Migration Crisis." Building off its previous findings, CSIS releases this backgrounder, where it explores trends in forced migration and identifies innovative solutions to address future crises.

This report was made possible by generous support from the Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to the CSIS Project on Prosperity and Development.
