11 February: Migration Seminar “The Effectiveness of Migration Policies: New Evidence from the DEMIG Project” by Hein de Haas
The Effectiveness of Migration Policies: New Evidence from the DEMIG Project
Prof. Hein de Haas
(International Migration Institute, University of Oxford and University of Maastricht)
MGSoG/UNU-MERIT and MACIMIDE migration seminar
Abstract: The effectiveness of migration policies has been widely contested; opposing are those arguing that borders are largely ‘beyond control’ (Bhagwati) and those arguing that there is no major migration control crisis. A lack of data and methodological shortcomings have prevented an informed debate on these issue. Based on the recently completed DEMIG (Determinants of International Migration) project (2010-2014) at the University of Oxford, Hein de Haas will present new empirical evidence on the nature and evolution of migration policies and their ability to influence migration.
