SEEMIG Results and Recommendations - Final brochure
Transnational policy recommendations – document for the Final Conference of SEEMIG
The purpose of the SEEMIG transnational policy recommendations regarding migration data is to help decision-makers understand the policy actions that are necessary for reforming the data systems related to international migration in the South-East European region. They are also intended to streamline national sectorial policies and EU/regional programming until 2020. The recommendations target national policymakers and statistical offices in the SEE region (also those not directly involved in SEEMIG), as well as national policymakers of European countries outside the SEE region and EU level policymakers. They might be of further interest to other stakeholders, including practitioners and researchers.
Eight participating countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia) compiled their national strategy document aiming at the improvement of the migration data collection process on national and local level, thus providing qualitative and reliable data on migration, labour market and human capital.
Population projections for Hungary and Slovakia at national, regional and local levels
Six scenarios of the future national population development have been prepared for both Hungary and Slovakia. The most frequently used three-variant demographical forecast represents the basic output. It has been prepared with using of most commonly applied Cohort-Component method in the deterministic (variant) way. The three major components of the future demographical change are modelled, namely the processes of fertility, mortality and migration. The respective estimated rates of probabilities of these processes are being applied to demographical cohorts.
Common methodology for SEEMIG populations projections
Action Plans to improve migratory data production systems
Eight participating countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia) prepared a national-level Action Plan to describe possible steps to improve of their existing migratory data production systems and data sources.
Eight participating countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia) conducted foresight exercises to develop future scenarios of demographic, migratory and labour market processes. Based on main findings of the country report, a synthesis analysis was prepared to highlight key themes being discussed across the region of Southern and Eastern Europe.

Analysis of existing migratory data production systems and data sources
Eight participating countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia) prepared the description of their existing migratory data production systems and data sources. The country reports explore the areas of possible improvements and include recommendations. Based on findings of the country-level analyses, a South-East European (SEE) level Synthesis report has been prepared, summarising best practices and providing SEE level recommendations.
Dynamic historical analysis of migratory, labour market and human capital processes
Eight participating countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia) prepared their dynamic analysis of longer term migratory, labour market and human capital processes. Based on findings of the country-reports, a Synthesis report has been prepared to give an overview of historical trends of the South-East European region.
Comparative analysis of existing major population projections in SEEMIG countries
The comparative analysis evaluates projections data of the SEEMIG countries in two directions: it compares the differences in the expected development among the individual countries for each prognosis and it also compares the differences among all available prognoses for the same country.
Conceptual framework for modelling longer term migratory, labour market and human capital processes
The paper aims to elaborate a theoretical and analytical framework for the interrelationships of demographic, migratory, labour market and human capital processes.
Data requirement paper for measuring longer term migratory, labour market and human capital processes
The paper will first discuss general problems and limitations related to data collection on international migration, especially regarding their usability and homogeneity as well as harmonisation efforts in this regard.
Net Migration and Historical Development in Southeastern Europe since 1950
This essay formulates some basic developmental patterns in Southeastern Europe (focusing on the area between Italy and the Caspian See) on the basis of some longer term macro statistics on net migration and other macro statistical time series. It demonstrates that in furthering an understanding of longer term developmental patterns, the world system approach is helpful in a modified form.
