SPP's Head Martin Kahanec gives a talk on The Global Migration Challenge: Lessons from Europe, at the CEU-Berkeley joint symposium Borders, Borderlands, and Migration on September 11th, 2018.
“The measured labor market impact of immigration in Europe is generally neutral or positive, not least because immigrants respond to shortages of qualified labor more flexibly than the natives. The key lesson from Europe is that such positive experience with economic migration is not enough; we need a sustainable migration policy framework that addresses the concerns and fears, and eventually wins the support, of the citizens” expresses Professor Kahanec.
The joint symposium saw the attendance of many Central European University colleagues including Nadia Al-Bagdadi, Professor of History; Balázs Trencsényi, Professor of History; Prem Kumar Rajaram, Associate Professor of Sociology and Social Anthropology; Jenna Althoff, PhD Candidate, Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy, and International Relations; Boldizsár Nagy, Associate Professor of International Relations; and Zsolt Enyedi, Professor of Political Science, along with colleagues from Corvinus University in Budapest and the Bratislava-based Central European Labour Studies Institute.
