Gone with the Wind: International Migration

Join Dr Dennis Wesselbaum of the Centre for Global Migrations as he examines the driving forces of international migration.

Drawing on a rich dataset from 16 destination and 198 origin countries between 1980 and 2014, the presentation seeks to examine the determinants of international migration, capturing year-to-year variations and long-run effects.

The overarching argument is that climate change is a more important driver than income and political freedom and that a large timeframe is key to understanding the effects of climate change. These key findings suggest implications for national and international immigration policies.

Dr Dennis Wesselbaum teaches in the Department of Economics and is a member of the Centre for Global Migrations.
