The lecture will start with stylised facts on recent international trends in migration and the composition of migrant populations. We will next discuss how migration can affect the economies of receiving countries, and how the economic effects of immigration can be measured, providing several examples. We will then ask how much economic considerations actually matter for the way people assess immigration policy. We will look at research that investigates how majority populations form their views about migration and migration policies, and what the drivers are for people's attitudes towards migration.
