Darwin Lecture Theatre
Lunch Hour Lecture:
The beliefs people hold about immigration are not necessarily formed on the basis of economic considerations, but on other non-economic concerns and fears. Prof Dustmann will report on his research that quantifies the magnitude of these two channels.

He is Director of CReAM, the Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration, and scientific Director of the Norface programme on migration. He is a research fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), and a research associate of the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS).
