Advanced Perspectives in the Analytics and Policy Design of International Migration (E420)
Advanced Course Offering Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Oded Stark, July 9 – 20, 2018
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.
