Migration: A driver of economic growth?

CEPS Event

Event Agenda

While short-terms effects from migration have received much attention, the IMF's latest research examines the longer-term impact of migration on the GDP per capita, and hence standards of living, of receiving advanced economies. It finds that immigration significantly increases the GDP per capita of host economies, mostly by raising productivity. Both high- and low-skilled migrants can contribute to raise productivity, in part by complementing the existing skill set of the population. These gains from immigration appear to be broadly shared across the population.
Florence Jaumotte, a senior economist at the IMF, will present her research on the link between immigration and economic growth. Her presentation will be followed by a discussion and a short introduction of CEPS' "Mercator Dialogue on Asylum and Migration" (MEDAM), a research project that deals with pressing issues in EU migration and asylum policy.
