The study comprises selected results of a Delphi research (subjective judgements on the future on a collective expert basis) on international migration between Central/Eastern and Western European countries. 70 (in the first Delphi round) and 39 (in the second Delphi round) scholars and officers, especially sociologists, economists, geographers and demographers, dealing with the topic of migration, from all over Europe took part. The contribution shows respondents' evaluating and assessing possible future determinants of movements, types and composition of movements, volume and timing of migration, regional differentiation of migratory flows and recommendations in terms of "Western" and "Eastern" migration policy objectives.
