Event Agenda

Economic Policy

International migration is at the top of the European political agenda. European labor markets need immigrants. Population aging has already created labor shortages, but immigration also raises concerns about distributional conflicts.

These concerns, sometimes real and sometimes imagined, have played an important role in the rise of populist parties across Europe, and in the Brexit referendum. The aim of this lunchtime seminar is to provide an overall assessment on the welfare effects of immigration, propose how work-based immigration could be organized, and present evidence on the impact of integration policies in OECD countries on migration intentions.

This meeting is jointly organised with EconPol Europe – The European Network for Economic and Fiscal Policy Research.
