Call for Papers
 Third annual Conference on

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?
Papers examining immigration in OECD countries and those focusing especially on any of the above mentioned questions are welcome (see below for instructions for submitting a paper).

All authors are asked to submit a full paper. The author making the submission must provide the full names, affiliations, and email addresses of all coauthors for each submission. Please note that each individual may present only one paper during the conference, though they may be listed as a co-author on multiple papers.
The selected papers will be made available online, except if authors refuse explicitly this possibility.
The organizers will not able to cover the cost of your participation to the conference
