The Economics of Migration and Asylum Call for applications

Migration has important economic, political, and social consequences and is at the heart of the public debate across the globe. Recent years have seen a surge in new research that has considerably extended and reassessed our understanding of the far-ranging effects of migration on migrants, their countries of destination, and countries of origin.
The summer school aims to (i) introduce participants to cutting-edge topics in the economics of migration and asylum and (ii) discuss their implications for economic policy. The summer school targets PhD students and recent post-docs in economics and related disciplines with a strong academic record and interest in policy issues as well as staff members of policy institutions with a graduate degree. The schedule will allow for plenty of opportunities for students to engage in debates and discuss their ideas and research with speakers and fellow students.

The list of speakers includes:

Ran Abramitzky (Stanford)
Toman Barsbai (Kiel Institute)
Herbert Brücker (IAB)
Albrecht Glitz (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) Mark Rosenzweig (Yale)
Matti Sarvimäki (Aalto)
