The 2nd Winter School on the Analytics and Policy Design of Migration
Doha, Qatar





Scholarship / Financial aid: participation+return air travel+accommodation+meals will be covered

Date: January 7-11, 2015

Deadline: October 15, 2014

Open to: applicants with a Ph.D. in Economics or Economics Ph.D. students writing their dissertation


Announcement follows

Background

International migration is one of the most exciting topics to explore in social science research. Why some people leave, why others stay, what are the repercussions of migration for the sending and the receiving economies, for the migrants themselves, and for their families, are themes that invite disciplined inquiry.

The main purpose of the School is to induce participants to think rigorously, creatively, and in non-conventional ways on various approaches to the modeling of migration choices and consequences, and to demonstrate to the participants how such a thinking process could enrich the spectrum of informed migration policies. Participants will be exposed to the art of economic modeling in general, and to the workings of applied microeconomic theory in particular.

The School’s core activity will be five lectures delivered by Professor Oded Stark. The topics to be covered will constitute a subset of migration-related topics researched by the lecturer, such as integration, migration, and assimilation as responses to relative deprivation; the long shadow of home country variables; migration under asymmetric information; migration, human capital formation, and economic growth; and migration, inequality, and social welfare. Sets of articles related to the lectures will be distributed to the participants in the course of the School.

Participants will be asked to submit an outline of a new paper related to the School's theme within two weeks of the completion of the School. They will also be invited to contribute to and participate in a future Conference on the Analytics and Policy Design of Migration.


The lecturer

The Second Winter School will be led by Oded Stark, Distinguished Research Scholar at Georgetown University, School of Foreign Service in Qatar.

Oded Stark is Distinguished Fellow at the Center for Development Research, University of Bonn, a University Professor and Chair in Economic and Regional Policy at the University of Klagenfurt, an Honorary University Professor of Economics at the University of Vienna, a Distinguished Professor at the University of Warsaw, an Adjunct Professor at the University of Tuebingen, and a Professor of Economics at the University of Navarra.

He served as Professor of Economics (Chair in Development Economics) at the University of Oslo, and prior to that as a Professor of Population and Economics and as the Director of the Migration and Development Program at Harvard University. He has written on applied microeconomic theory, development economics, population economics, the economics of migration, labor economics, evolutionary economics, urban economics, regional economics, welfare economics, and the theory of the firm. He is the author of the critically acclaimed books The Migration of Labor (Oxford and Cambridge, MA: Blackwell 1991 and 1993), and Altruism and Beyond, An Economic Analysis of Transfers and Exchanges Within Families and Groups (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press 1995 and 1999), and the co-editor of the Handbook of Population and Family Economics (in Handbooks in Economics; Amsterdam: North-Holland 1997). Oded Stark is Doctor honoris causa (University of Warsaw), a Humboldt Awardee, and a Presidential Professor of Economics (Poland).
