The global network of transnational mobility
Le réseau mondial de mobilité transnationale

Ettore Recchi, Emanuel Deutschmann, Michele Vespe

Ettore Recchi, Emanuel Deutschmann and Maxime Chabriel have recently created a dataset to estimate international mobility (border crossing), on the basis of global statistics on tourism and air passenger traffic. More than 15 billion trips were counted in the years between 2011 and 2016, and the tendency is upward.

Luca Maria Pesando

Mathieu Ichou, Matthew Wallace

L’impact des infrastructures de transport sur la croissance et le développement

Bishal Bhakta Kasu, Guangqing Chi

Migration reduces climate risk for many but not for all

Add something else to the list of things that seem simple but are actually complicated – the way someone reports their race or ethnicity. In a recently-published research article (Liebler et al. 2017), we used a large, unique linked dataset from two U.S. Censuses

Teenage immigrants fare worse than younger immigrants in Norway
Les migrants adolescents réussissent moins bien que les migrants plus jeunes en Norvège

Are Skeie Hermansen

Immigration during childhood represents an important turning point for future developmental trajectories, and the timing of this event (i.e., age at arrival) has an impact on later-life educational success and economic opportunities (Hermansen, 2017). About 15 percent of the world’s migrants are under the age of 20. That is almost 37 million people according to

Les politiques démographiques sont-elles efficaces ?

Jacques Vallin
