Migration has important economic, political, and social consequences and is at the heart of the public debate across the globe. Recent years have seen a surge in new research that has considerably extended and reassessed our understanding of the far-ranging effects of migration on migrants, their countries of destination, and countries of origin.
The summer school aims to (i) introduce participants to cutting-edge topics in the economics of migration and asylum and (ii) discuss their implications for economic policy. The summer school targets graduate students in economics and related disciplines with a strong academic record and interest in policy issues as well as staff members of policy institutions with a graduate degree. The schedule will allow for plenty of opportunities for students to engage in debates and discuss their ideas and research with faculty and fellow students.
The Summer School include 5 days of teaching. Lectures will be given by Ran Abramitzky (Stanford), Toman Barsbai (Kiel Institute), Herbert Brücker (IAB), Albrecht Glitz (Universitat Pompeu Fabra), Mark Rosenzweig (Yale), Matti Sarvimäki (Aalto).
The 10th Kiel Institute Summer School on Economic Policy 2017 is organized by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy and supported by the Mercator Dialogue on Asylum and Migration (MEDAM). The size of the group is limited to 25 participants. Participants will be hosted in the guest house of the Institute (“Haus Weltclub”).
The registration fee to attend the summer school is € 680 for graduate students and post-docs and € 1,680 for staff members of policy institutions and all other participants. The fee includes full board and accommodation at the guest house of the Kiel Institute. Participants need to make their own travel arrangements and cover their travel costs. For applicants based in a developing country several stipends will be available to cover the registration fee and some travel costs. Accepted participants are required to stay for the entire week.
