The complex nexus of forced migration, development, and security is central to the analysis of household welfare. Any empirical analysis of the link between conflict and forced migration faces issues due to endogeneity, generalizability, or data quality. The workshop thus aims at discussing creative and innovative approaches that allow dealing with the above issues to provide evidence, which can be used to benefit a non-negligible share of the world population.
The keynote speaker is Mathias Thoenig, Professor of Economics at the School of Business and Economics at the University of Lausanne. In an open plenary session, which is jointly organized by the Centre for Global Migration Studies (CeMig) and the German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), we will discuss “Migration and Security Policy” with – among others – Ruben Andersson (Oxford University), Mercy Fekadu (Institute for Peace and Security Studies), and Michael Owiso (Maseno University), followed by moderated discussions in smaller groups.
