On September 23-24, 2016, the RGS Econ (Ruhr Graduate School in Economics) and the RWI (Rheinisch-Westfälisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung) organize a workshop on the ‘Economics of Migration’ in Essen, Germany.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together young and experienced researchers to present and discuss their work in the broad area of migration economics. Both empirical and theoretical contributions are welcome. The workshop will be organized in a matter designed to foster interaction among the participants
in a relaxed atmosphere.
The keynote lectures will be given by Christina Gathmann (University of Heidelberg) and Hillel Rapoport (Paris School of Economics).
Researchers interested in participating should submit a paper or an extended abstract in pdf format to migrationworkshop2016@rgs-econ.de. The submission deadline is July 1, 2016. Young researchers are particularly encouraged to apply. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by July 24, 2016.
There is no participation fee. Accommodation for two overnight stays as well as meals during the workshop will be provided by the organizers. The participants do, however, have to cover their own travel costs. Financial support by the Mercator Foundation is gratefully acknowledged.
