Second Workshop on Immigration, Health and Well-Being

6 June 2017
64 Banbury Rd, Oxford

The workshop’s focus is broad, covering empirical economic research on these topics. The workshop will last one day, with a small number of hour-long research presentations, and will also include a poster session. The workshop also aims to foster new connections among scholars with common interests in these areas. Giovanni Peri from UCDavis will give the keynote lecture.

The workshop is part of the Role of European Mobility and its Impacts in Narratives, Debates and EU Reforms (REMINDER) project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme.
