The Economics of Forced Migration
Friday, 09 December 2005 to Saturday, 10 December 2005
MIT Faculty Club, Cambridge, MA
Hosted by RSC and Inter-University Committee on International Migration (IUCIM)
Despite the recent flourish of interest in international migration, forced migration remains relatively neglected by economists. The intent of the workshop was therefore to assess the state of knowledge on economic aspects of forced migration, to help define an agenda for future work and research methods, and to promote wider interest in this set of issues among the economics community. Those invited included researchers and practitioners who have actively contributed to various aspects of the economics of forced migration, a wider set of economists with interests connected to international migration and development, and experts in forced migration more generally.
