The objective of The Economics of Migration is to give an opportunity to migration scholars to exchange and interact with a broader audience.

A series of twin online seminars is organised, divided into a Junior and a Senior segment.

The aim of the Senior seminars is to disseminate the most recent work by well-known researchers and to facilitate the interactions between institutions.

The aim of the Junior seminars is to provide Ph.D. students and post-doctoral researchers the opportunity to present their work in front of fellow junior researchers and faculty members from a broad range of institutions (see the call for papers below).


The Economics of Migration seminars take place on Wednesdays from 5.30 to 6.30 pm CET on Zoom, alternating between the Junior and the Senior seminars. Participation in the seminar is open to all and information is disseminated through the mailing list. If you want to receive information on the webinars, you can subscribe to our mailing list via this form.


Call for Papers (only for the Junior Seminar)
