Third annual Conference on
IMMIGRATION IN OECD COUNTRIES
Economic Recession and Migration
6 December 2013
OECD Conference Centre, Paris
The OECD, the French research center in international economics (CEPII), the research team Equippe of the University of Lille, the Fondazione Rodolfo Debenedetti, the University of Luxemburg and IRES (Université Catholique de Louvain) are jointly organizing the Third annual Conference on “Immigration in OECD Countries“.
This edition will have one outstanding keynote speaker: Professor Timothy Hatton from the Australian National University and the University of Essex.
The conference is devoted to examining the economic aspects of international migration in OECD countries. In particular, this edition aims at shedding some light on the consequences of economic downturn in OECD countries on migration flows and on migrants’ behavior: How do labour migration flows react to changes in economic conditions in destination countries? What is the impact of the great recession on the composition of migration flows by main categories (labour, family, humanitarian, students) and on destination choices? What are the available evidence regarding return and secondary migration? How immigrants and their children are faring in the labour market?
