The Migration Program Area focuses on the many dimensions of the growing international and internal migration. It is concerned with the determinants of the supply and demand for migration, including immigration law and the legal status of migrants. It is also interested in the many aspects of the adjustment of the migrants and their descendants in the destination, including public policies regarding absorption and assimilation. Moreover, the program area is concerned with the impact of the migration on both the origin and the destination. The implications of the analyses for immigration policy, absorption and assimilation policy, and other public policies will also be developed.

Challenges for African migration to Europe discussed at the 12th Annual Migration Meeting

A Policy Symposium within the 12th AM² in Dakar/Senegal on April 21 brought together dignitaries, policymakers, academics, and representatives of migrant organizations who discussed how it can be avoided that migrants lose their lives on their way to Europe and how migration can help Africa to thrive economically.

Working Without Borders: A Manifesto for Europe’s Future

In May 2014, leading European labor economists published a manifesto calling for a European Charter for Migration.

First Handbook on the Economics of Migration



While the scope of migration is extending persistently, there is no adequate authoritative treatment of its various branches in one volume. To close this gap, Edward Elgar has just published (September 2013) the first International Handbook on the Economics of Migration edited by IZA Program Director of Migration, Amelie F. Constant, and IZA Director, Klaus F. Zimmermann.
The new Handbook goes beyond providing basic information on migration. It offers the latest experiences on migration research and tackles frontier issues in the field. It provides comprehensive guidance to economics scholars, inquiring researchers, students of migration and policy advisers. This Handbook is a carefully commissioned and refereed compilation of 28 state-of-the-art chapters of research in the economics of migration written by 44 leading experts in the field.
Each chapter comprises a critical assessment of the status quo and presents challenges to the traditional economics of migration by addressing taboo issues. Structured in five sensible parts, the topics explored include: child labor migrants; immigrant educational mismatch; ethnic hiring; immigrants, wages and obesity; ethnic identities and the nation state; natural disasters and migration; immigration-religiosity intersections; immigration and crime; immigrants’ time use; happiness and migration; diaspora resources and policies; and the evaluation of immigration policies.

The Annual Meeting of the Migration Area

The Migration Research Area at IZA has established an annual meeting since its creation in 2004.The highlight of the two-day Annual Migration Meeting (AM², pronounced AMsquared) is the Julian Simon Lecture. Every other year, the AMsquared spans a week, combined with the Migration Topic Week (MTW). The AM² takes place at IZA in Bonn but also internationally.

Recent Meeting:

2015: The 12th AM² and 5th MTW in Dakar, Senegal, brought the meeting to the next level through a separate but integrated “Policy Symposium Migration” day, which took place on April 21st, 2015, and brought together high-profile policymakers, academics, and representatives of migrant organizations.

The Julian Simon Lecture

The Annual Migration Meeting (AM²) established the Julian Simon Keynote Lecture in honor of Julian Simon, in recognition of his research on the economic effects of population change. Below we list the Julian Simon Lecturers and their lectures starting in 2004.

Migration Topic Week

The "Migration Topic Week" (MTW) is a biennial gathering of migration scholars and is held in tandem with the Annual Migration Meeting (AM²). The first MTW was held in 2006 at IZA, Bonn. The last 5th IZA Migration Topic Week took place in Dakar, Senegal from April 20 to April 25, 2015.

The idea of MTW is to create a forum of discussions on migration, to provide the opportunities to have useful interactions and engage in long discussions with both young scholars and senior researchers in migration, to have highly stimulating and provocative meetings, to brainstorm, and to converge to possible fruitful collaborations.

This forum is not confined to the constrained format of a conference or a workshop. We especially invite researchers who want to work together on migration projects during this week. We expect to have longer lectures from the participants and end the week with our Annual Migration Meeting (AM²). All participants are expected to interface and have an active role during the week and at the AM².

The Annual Meeting on the Economics of Risky Behaviors

In 2009, in collaboration with DIWDC and Georgia State University, IZA started a new Annual Meeting on the Economics of Risky Behaviors (AMERB),organized by Program Director Amelie F. Constant and IZA fellow and professor at Georgia State Erdal Tekin.

Other Area Events

The Migration Research Area has held numerous events, meetings and conferences over the years. Some of these events have been co-funded by prestigious foundations and the EU Commission. Below, we list some meetings chronologically. The 'events' page of IZA contains all events of the area.

IZA/UI Workshop on Migration

The IZA/UI Workshop on Migration was in collaboration with the Urban Institute and was held at the Urban Institute in Washington, DC in 2004.


The Migration Ethnicity Meetings

The Migration Ethnicity Meetings (MEM), within IZA's grant by the Volkswagen Foundation, are examples of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary events that the area held. They are meetings of the funded project: The Economics and Persistence of Migrant Ethnicity.
IZA is also providing and maintaining the webpage for all VW funded groups.

Within the Volkswagen Foundation funding three-year project, IZA organized other focus groups meetings with great success:

  • The IZA Interethnic Practitioners' Meeting on Entrepreneurship

  • The IZA Interethnic Practitioners' Meeting on Naturalization and Citizenship

  • The IZA Interethnic Practitioners' Meeting on Interethnic Marriages


EU Enlargement Project

Within the EU Enlargement project IZA has held a series of workshops and meetings:

In 2009 and 2011 a series of book launch events "IZA on Tour" promoting a book edited by Martin Kahanec and Klaus F. Zimmermann "EU Labor Markets after Post-Enlargement Migration" (Berlin: Springer, 2010) visited several intellectual and policy hubs worldwide: Berlin, Brussels, Washington DC, Stockholm, Dublin, Riga, Beijing, London, Warsaw, Maastricht, Vienna, and Budapest.


Ethnic Minority Project

The Ethnic Minority project, co-funded by the EU Commission also held the Workshops: Social and Labor Market Integration of Ethnic Minorities at IZA, Bonn and the Social and Labour Market Integration of Ethnic Minorities in the European Union: Challenges and Prospects in Brussels, BE in 2007.

IZA Director calls for fundamental changes in German immigration policy

In view of the skilled labor shortage in Germany, IZA Director Klaus F. Zimmermann has urged policymakers to ease the current restrictions on labor immigration. An export nation like Germany "cannot survive in the globalized world" without opening its labor market to qualified foreign workers, said Zimmermann in an interview with the news agency "ddp". At the same time he proposed the establishment of a "Federal Ministry for Immigration and Integration" to ensure a consistent policy with regard to all economic, social and educational aspects surrounding this issue.

The Board of Transatlantic Advisers

The Board of Transatlantic Advisers comprises some of the most influential academicians and policy intellectuals with profound expertise on current labor and migration challenges from both sides of the Atlantic. The main role of the Board is to inform IZA's research agenda by firmly connecting it to the critical scientific and policy issues in the areas of migration, immigrant integration, and the associated transatlantic challenges. The IZA's Migration Program Area frequently consults its research projects with David G. Blanchflower (UK), Barry R. Chiswick (US), Jose Manuel Fresno-Garcia (Spain), Guillermina Jasso (US), Douglas S. Massey (US) and Rita Süssmuth (Germany).

EU Enlargement and the Labor Markets



Funded by: None
Project Start: 2006/11/01
Project End: 2019/12/31
Project leader(s): Martin Kahanec (Central European University and IZA),  Klaus F. Zimmermann (University of Bonn)
Participants: Anzelika Zaiceva (University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and IZA),  Holger Hinte (IZA)
Short Description: This Migration Program research sub-area combines IZA's internal scientific potential with the expertise of external researchers to address three primary scientific objectives. First, we assess the effects of the 2004, 2007 and 2013 EU enlargements on the labor markets of the fifteen pre-2004 member states as well as the eleven new members from Central and Eastern Europe. The second objective is to evaluate the different migration policies adopted by the old and new member states as well as the European Union regarding mobility in an enlarged EU. The third objective of this research sub-area is to enlighten the intensive and yet rather uninformed debate about the role of post-enlargement migration for economic adjustment in the crisis-stricken labor markets of the Euro Area and the EU as a whole. To foster collaboration with external experts on achieving these objectives, the IZA Expert Network on EU Enlargement and the Labor Markets has been established. The network is coordinated by Martin Kahanec and currently involves nine members (Alan Barrett, Ireland; Denis Fougere, France; Marek Gora, Poland; Joop Hartog, The Netherlands; Timothy J. Hatton, The UK; Mihails Hazans, Latvia; Peder J. Pedersen, Denmark; Sara de la Rica, Spain; and Eskil Wadensjö, Sweden). A highlight achievement of this research sub-area is the edited volume "EU Labor Markets after Post-Enlargement Migration", M. Kahanec and K.F. Zimmermann (eds.), Berlin: Springer, (2010), praised as "Noteworthy in Industrial Relations and Labor Economics" by Princeton University for 2010.

The International Handbook on the Economics of Migration
While the scope of migration is extending persistently, there is no adequate authoritative treatment of its various branches in one volume. To close this gap, Edward Elgar has just published the first International Handbook on the Economics of Migration edited by IZA Program Director of Migration, Amelie F. Constant, and IZA Director, Klaus F. Zimmermann.
