Migration, Employment, and Remittances | Seminar

When: 3 Oct 2016 – 16:00 – 18:00
Where: Regent’s University London (Tuke Common) – Inner Circle Regent’s Park, London, NW1 4NS

Politics in Britain has been misinformed and misled recently. Debates on Brexit referendum were heavily influenced by migration debate as many of the recent elections in the UK. The truth is there are millions of British living abroad and many in the EU while millions of Europeans settled in the UK. Thus a decision on “in” or “out” is not an easy one and likely to remain so despite the outcome of the recent referendum.

The panel will review the major migration challenges globally and in the UK and US. There are perhaps no immediate solutions to migration challenges, only trade offs between competing goods that are often difficult to make explicit. This seminar offers a unique opportunity to interact with leading migration experts.
