13th Annual Migration Meeting (AM²)
December 2023Nairobi, Kenya
This course addresses the question of why fundamentally equal humans living in different countries enjoy very different standards of living. The aim of this course is to make the very latest research in economics on these issues accessible to anyone who is sufficiently curious about it. It is modeled after the award-winning undergraduate development course at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and, like its model, it is entirely based on research articles.
For more than a decade the IZA Annual Migration Meeting (AM²) has provided a unique environment in which to present innovative research and exchange ideas with renowned speakers, veterans in the field and junior scholars. We invite submissions of high quality academic work that extends, enriches, refines, and challenges our understanding of the broad array of issues related to migration. Researchers are expected to present their cutting-edge work. Following tradition, the conference will be organized in a matter designed to foster interaction among the participants in a relaxed atmosphere.
The highlight of the AM² is the Julian Simon Lecture.
Professor George J. Borjas (Harvard Kennedy School and IZA) will deliver this year’s lecture.
The invited authors are expected to participate in the entire 2-day migration meeting.
