PSE Summer School on MIGRATION ECONOMICS "Migration challenges in global labor markets"
Immigration is a major aspect of globalization and is increasingly at the center of the public and policy debate. This course aims to present the cutting-edge research on the economics of migration and to provide the tools to contribute to this field. The course is divided in 3 parts: - The first part (taught by Hillel Rapoport) studies the relationship between globalization and development. It analyzes how migration affects other dimensions of globalization, such as trade, FDI, technology diffusion and the transmission of socio-cultural norms. - The second part (taught by Hippolyte d’Albis) focuses on the demographic effect of immigration and the consequences of migration on capital accumulation and growth. - The third part (taught by Grégory Verdugo and Biagio Speciale) studies the impact of immigration on natives’ labor market outcomes. It also investigates the barriers to immigrants’ assimilation. With regard to the methodology, the course combines the analysis of the main theoretical models in the migration literature with the most recent and rigorous empirical evidence.
