Migration Observatory

Migration Observatory webpage

Funding Institution: Compagnia di San Paolo

Partners: Collegio Carlo Alberto (Turin)

Start/end date: 1 January 2016 – currently on going

LdA Current Researchers: Tommaso Frattini (coordinator), Sante De Pinto and Natalia Vigezzi

Goals: the main objective of the observatory is to study analytically topical issues on migration, such as the economic and social impact of immigration on receiving and sending countries or the implications of different migration policies, from an international and cross-disciplinary perspective. Then, it aims to construct a critical  mass of academic knowledge in order to increase the visibility of Collegio Carlo Alberto and Centro Studi Luca d’Agliano in the policy debate.

Asylum policies in Europe and the refugee crisis

Project webpage

Funding Institution: Nuffield Foundation

Start/end date: April 2017 – April 2019

LdA Current Researchers: Francesco Fasani, Tommaso Frattini, Luigi Minale

Goals: the project will use multiple data sets from the UK and across Europe to investigate the interplay between asylum policies and refugees’ outcomes:

  • The influence of borded control policies on the composition, size and direction of migrant and refugee flows, and the impact on the migration-related risk of death.
  • The impact of different asylum and refugee policies on refugees’ socio-economic integration in the host countries.
  • The feedback into policy-making through the effect of refugee flows on natives’ voting behaviour.

The project will assess the effectiveness of asylum policies in reaching their stated objectives, but will also investigate other unintended, but potentially relevant, long term consequences. The combined findings will provide policy-relevant evidence on the role of asylum polcies.

Value Added in Motion. The Future Geography of Production, Migration and Energy (VAM)

VAM webpage

Funding Institution: Enel Foundation

Partners: University of Milan, Department of Economics, Management and Quantitative Methods

Start/End date: 1 May 2013 – 30 April 2016

LdA Researchers: Giorgio Barba Navaretti (coordinator), Gianmarco Ottaviano and Giovanni Pica (Geography of Value Added), Giovanni Facchini and Tommaso Frattini (Migration), Marzio Galeotti, Francesco Vona and Federico Pontoni (Energy)

Goals: The overarching aim of this large project has been understanding the geography of value added and its implications for migration and for demand and supply of energy. Work pursued three different objectives:
i) mapping the geography of value added and to assess its main triggers;
ii) assessing the relationship between the location of activities and the production of value added and population movements;
iii) assessing how energy demand and the availability of energy sources relate to the creation, composition, and location of economic activities and to population movements.

Events

VAM Final Output Presentation, Enel Foundation, 19 September 2016, Rome.

VAM Conference: “The Future Geography of Production, Migration and Energy”, 14-15th May 2015, University of Milan.
