16/11/2016 Refugees and Economic Migrants: facts, policies and challenges, London
Hosted By: London School of Economics
The refugee crisis in Europe, the campaign that led to the (Br)exit of the UK from the European Union, and the ongoing presidential race in the US are just three major examples of the role played by migration in the current political and media debate.

The debate is often harsh and polarized. It oscillates from calls for more openness of borders to promises of building new fences, contrasting the opposite views of those who emphasize the advantages and benefits from migration flows and those who instead consider migrants an unnecessary strain imposed on receiving societies.

Although the economic analysis of migration is a relatively recent field of research, a solid, rigorous and insightful body of research has been developed in recent years. Important empirical and theoretical results have been produced in many areas, from the impact on receiving societies to the process of conceiving and implementing migration policies. These findings still need to be fully disseminated among policy-makers and the general public.

Written by some of the best scholars in the field, this ebook offers a brief summary of what economists have learnt about migration in several crucial areas of policy making and points at all the important questions that still remain to be answered.
