1st CEMIR conference on International Migration: Competition for Talent and Brain Circulation

  • Conference Call
  • On 14–15 December 2012, Ifo Institute and CESifo will hold the 1st Center of Excellence for Migration and Integration Research (CEMIR) conference on International Migration: Competition for Talent and Brain Circulation, in Munich, Germany. We welcome both empirical and theoretical papers that address policy-relevant questions.

    Conference Theme

    Diverging demographic developments in Europe and in developing countries create a potential for huge mutual gains from migration. At the same time, the immigration of low- skilled workers and emigration of high-skilled workers pose a challenge to the European social model.

    • How can receiving countries ensure that immigrants are net contributors to public finances?
    • How can receiving countries’ welfare state and labor market institutions and immigration policies be improved?

    To answer these questions, the Ifo Institute has established the Center of Excellence for Migration and Integration Research (CEMIR). It brings together labor economics, public economics, political economics, education economics and globalisation research. This inaugural conference will focus on high-skilled migration, from both receiving and sending countries’ perspectives. Also other contributions on international migration are welcome.

    Keynote Speech

    The keynote lectures will be delivered by George Borjas, Harvard University Kennedy School of Government, and Giovanni Peri, University of California, Davis.

    Publication Opportunity / Financial Support

    Accommodation will be provided. We will reimburse lowest fare economy travel costs for all participants with accepted papers.

    All papers presented at the conference will appear in the CESifo Working Paper Series.
