Migration is a major aspect of globalization and is increasingly at the center of the public and policy debate. What are the microeconomic impacts of migration and how to address the challenge of identifying them? What is the relationship between migration, other dimensions of globalization, and development? What are the public finance and demographic effect of immigration for the host countries? What are the effects of immigration on the labor market? How do host societies adapt to increasingly diverse population?

Ambitions
