|Description:||IMISCOE/INFER Workshop on International Economics: Work, Entrepreneurship and Economic Integration - Migration Research in Economics and the other Social Sciences|
|Subject:||The aim of the workshop is to encourage economists to expand their research interests to migration research as well as to encourage migration researchers from other disciplines to include economic aspects of migration and integration into their research. So far, the relation between migration research and economics has largely been one of mutual disregard. For instance, the National Survey of Immigration Scholars (conducted in the USA at the end of the 1990s) analysed the scientific background of migration researchers. According to this survey, migration research has hitherto been dominated mainly by sociologists, historians and anthropologists.
