EACH-FOR was a two year long research project within the frames of FP6 (Priority 8.1 – Policy-oriented research) of the European Commission.
"Forced migration" is a movement in which an element of coercion exists, including threats to life and livelihood, whether arising from natural or man-made causes (e.g. movements of refugees and internally displaced persons). The changes of natural and human-made environment will probably be the most significant factors among the causes of forced migration. It is essential to get accurate information about the current and future triggers of forced migration in each country of origin and within Europe itself.
Its goal was to support European policies, research and the civil society with ‘forced migration’ scenarios, and cooperate with other migration and environment degradation related projects and institutions by:
Developing detailed and aggregated forced migration scenarios on the basis of interdisciplinary analysis of local and regional environmental, economic, political
and social processes.
