Together with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the department has issued a call for papers ahead of the two-day Workshop on the Economics and Politics of Migration, scheduled to take place on 22-23 April.

The workshop is the follow-up to the department’s successful inaugural workshop, which took place online in November.

Dr Cevat Giray Aksoy, from the Department of Political Economy at King’s, said: “The workshop will provide a platform for researchers and policymakers to discuss new research and to identify areas where further academic and policy-oriented work is needed. Both theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome. There will be a dedicated discussant for each paper, as well as an open floor discussion.”

The online workshop, hosted by Dr Aksoy, Konstantinos Matakos and Pierre-Louis Vézina, will feature keynote speeches by Ran Abramitzky (Stanford) on ‘Immigration and the American Dream over two Centuries’, and Sandra Sequeira (LSE) on the ‘Economics of Displacement’.
