Unless labour force participation in Europe increases enormously in the coming decades, the current demographic dynamics will pose gigantic challenges to the sustainability of public finance. Migration (and thus migration policy) can thus be seen as a central topic which will remain on top of the policy agenda. The aim of this policy brief is to summarise the knowledge gained by the research efforts on this issue in the framework of WWWforEurope and to provide policy makers with new methods and research results which will allow them to better quantify the effects of policy changes.
