The impact of refugee migration

Video details

Professor Dr Klaus Zimmermann hosts a lecture on the impact of refugee migration. Human mobility remains a major issue for societies and academia, in particular with respect to forced migration and labour mobility. Its importance will increase in the face of rising global conflict, climate change, demographic imbalances, talent needs and populism. This lecture will outline challenges, virtues and benefits, and review how refugees and economic migrants perform. It will investigate the benefits of work-sharing, the tendency to specialise, the globalisation of work efforts and ethnic networks and diasporas.

This event was held in collaboration with Cara, the RSE International Programme and the RSE Young Academy of Scotland.
