OVERVIEW

Migration 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 of the course (taught by David McKenzie) addresses the challenge of identifying the microeconomic impacts of migration. It discusses the various channels through which migration has a measurable impact on the migrant household, the key obstacles to being able to attribute effects to migration itself, and different empirical methods that can be used to identify the impacts of migration.

> The second 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 third part (taught by Hippolyte d’Albis, Biagio Speciale and Grégory Verdugo) focuses on the demographic effect of immigration, on both the size of the population and its age structure, and the impact of immigration on natives’ labor market outcomes. It also investigates the barriers to immigrants’ assimilation.

In terms of methodology, the course combines theoretical modeling in the migration literature with the most recent and rigorous empirical evidence.
