Since 2016, I coordinate the joint Centro Studi Luca d’Agliano and Collegio Carlo Alberto Migration Observatory. The observatory aims at promoting analytical knowledge on topical issues such as the wider economic and social impacts of immigration on receiving and sending countries and the implications of different migration policies, from an international and cross-disciplinary perspective. It also aims at facilitating the dissemination of academic research on migration to a wider audience.

Our main activities include:

  • The organization of academic seminars in economics on migration-related topics at Collegio Carlo Alberto:
    • Leah Boustan (Princeton University): “Streets of Gold: Immigration and the American Dream Over Two Centuries”, November 18, 2020 (webinar).
