Migration is one of the key issues both in the U.S. and around the globe. Economists study migration from several perspectives: history, labor, trade, and development. Yet, too often researchers across fields do not present work in the same forum. This SITE session will start this conversation and bring together economists who study questions of migration from different perspectives to stimulate cross-field conversation and share insights and research findings. We plan a two-day conference, with 10-12 papers presented, and plenty of time to discuss and engage with work during the conference.
Organizers: Ran Abramitzky (Stanford), Ethan Lewis (Dartmouth College) and Melanie Morten (Stanford)
