Ethnic Discrimination and Brain Waste
Online workshop, 6 November 2020, University of Neuchâtel (online)
We are organizing an online workshop on ethnic discrimination and brain waste. This workshop will bring together researchers on ethnic discrimination and brain waste, tackling these issues from various disciplines, theoretical backgrounds, and methods. We welcome empirical studies of discrimination patterns across a large variety of domains, and studies on the consequences of anti-discrimination policies and legislation. Other contributions may focus on how to better measure skills-mismatch, the propensity of immigrants to become self-employed as a result of over-education, the propensity to (re-)migrate due to over-education, or their likelihood to send remittances. We are particularly keen on contributions that fully account for the gender dimension of discrimination and brain waste.
Submit your abstract specifying the research question, data, methods and findings (200 words maximum) at http://neuchatel.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0xpW57JWD4F1fox no later than 20 September 2020. For further information get in touch with Didier Ruedin (firstname.lastname@example.org). The workshop will take place online (Webex), no conference fee.
