Workshop on Immigration and Integration
In recent years, many European countries have accumulated sizable immigrant populations. Large-scale migration flows between countries are, of course, not a new phenomenon. The Age of Mass Migration during the late 19th and early 20th century saw massive emigration flows from European countries, including Germany and Italy, to America. Countries that are popular destinations for immigrants have a strong interest in fostering the long-term prosperity of those who arrive at their shores and aspire to become permanent residents or citizens. Yet, what is the track record of immigrants and their descendants in different spheres like the educational system, the labor market, the family or the political arena? And how much can immigration countries influence the destiny of immigrants and their descendants for instance, through policies such as entry restrictions or citizenship laws? This workshop will bring together senior and junior scholars to discuss recent research on these questions.
