Migration is a major aspect of globalization and is increasingly at the centre of the public and policy debate. This program aims to analyze topics such as the effects of migration on other dimensions of globalization (trade, FDI, technology diffusion, socio-cultural norms), poverty, inequality, and natives’ labor market outcomes. It also investigates the barriers to immigrants’ assimilation. The program combines the analysis of the main theoretical models in the migration literature with the most recent and rigorous empirical evidence
