What Economists Really Do: The Economics of Refugees and Migration

‘The Economics of Refugees and Migration’ with Dennis Egger (Oxford) will provide an engaging overview of recent empirical work on the labour market integration of refugees and migrants. There is a lot of academic and political debate about the costs and benefits of immigration, and the dynamics by which new arrivals are integrated into communities and labour markets. We will touch on new economic approaches to measure the impact of migration on domestic workers and refugees and migrants themselves, and what this means for policy.
