About

This course deals with the relation between international migration
and migration policy and economic structure and performance in Europe
and North America in the post-war period. It addresses important issues
concerning the need of labour mobility, the common agreement on
refugees’ right to asylum and the fact that immigrants are subject to
social exclusion in many Western countries.

Focus is on the causes and context of various migration waves, the
economic effects of immigration on the host countries, and the
socioeconomic careers of immigrants. Economic theories of migration and
integration are studied in combination with quantitative methods and
empirical studies of different regions and time periods.
