Zovanga Kone Research Affiliate


Zovanga worked on the ECONREF and the REMINDER projects. He was also part of the Migration Observatory. His research focuses on migration (both internal and international) and the labour market. He is currently working with Carlos Vargas-Silva on studies that emerged from his time at COMPAS. For instance, they are examining how different groups of migrants adjust their labour market supply to the same shock and how the initial experiences of asylum seekers in the UK influence their posterior job search behaviours.
