The course requires knowledge of intermediate-to-advanced level microeconomics.
International migration is one of the most exciting topics to explore in social science research. Why some people leave, why others stay, what are repercussions of migration for the sending and the receiving economies, for the migrants themselves, and for their families, are themes that invite disciplined inquiry. The main purpose of the course is to induce the participants to think rigorously, creatively, and in non-conventional ways on various approaches to the modeling of migration choices and consequences, and to demonstrate to the participants how such a thinking process could enrich the spectrum of informed migration policies.
The course is for MA students.
The course will consist of lectures. Students will be directed to readings as explained under “Literature” below.
The course will be held in an intensive manner: there will be four lectures, each several-hour long, starting at 2 p.m. on May 17, May 18, May 20, and May 21, 2021.
Integration, Migration, and Assimilation
Social Preferences and Migration Outcomes

Other readings, if and as needed, will be handed out to course participants during the course.

Following the course, the participants are expected to be more at ease with deciphering theoretical research on migration, and at engaging in such research themselves. Participants will be exposed to the art of economic modeling in general, and to the workings of applied microeconomic theory in particular.
