8 December 2015 - It is undeniable that migration is one of the key themes in current policy debate. However, the precise numbers of people migrating into and out of the country are very difficult to measure: data systems designed to record migrants often produce biased and inaccurate estimates. The challenge is even greater in the case of predictions. Migration is much more volatile than other population processes, as it is partially driven by shock events, such as political crises; wars; economic downturns; or environmental catastrophes, which themselves are largely unpredictable.

Significant issues affecting every individual's life course are often hard to discern behind abstract figures like the number of births, the mortality rate, or net migration. To address this CPC has been successful in gaining ESRC funding to bring a major European exhibition to the UK.

Through ten topical exhibition stands, interactive activities, information and games we will present this abstract knowledge in a way that allows visitors to recognise and reflect on how these demographic issues affect, and will affect, their own lives.
