time and place

Tuesday 15 February 2022, 09:00–10:00

84 million people are estimated to be forcibly displaced worldwide. Refugee migration has consequences for both migrants, receiving and sending populations and is highly debated in many countries.

What are the long run consequences of refugee migration? How may it affect economic and political outcomes and what policies can stimulate investments in human capital and labor market integration?

Welcome to a seminar where Sascha Becker will present his research on the consequences of forced migration. Sascha Becker is professor of economics at Monash University and part-time professor at the University of Warwick. His research covers economic history, public and political economics.

IIES/SNS International Policy Talks is a collaboration between the Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES) at Stockholm University and SNS with the mission to bring insights from leading international economists to the Swedish policy debate.
