About Joakim Ruist

My aim is to increase knowledge about how societies are affected by immigration. My research focuses on immigrants' integration in the receiving country, their impact on the receiving country's economy, and attitudes to immigration. I have also written several texts on the need for the EU to replace the right to asylum with a quota system.
