Demographic Changes: A Crystal Ball to Forecast Long-Term International Migration

Professor Craig McIntosh

International migration is an increasingly important and contentious phenomenon. Despite policy discussions in the United States and the EU that appear quite similar, demographic pressures in the sending regions for these two destinations will increasingly diverge over the coming half-century. Regardless of whether a wall is built, the United States is likely to be at the end of its long period of uncontrolled immigration, while the EU will experience ever-increasing migration pressures over the decades ahead. This lecture will explore these issues and will discuss likely outcomes.

Instructor: Craig McIntosh is professor of economics at UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy and co-director of the Policy Design and Evaluation Lab. He is a development economist whose work focuses on program evaluation. He received his PhD in Agricultural and Resource Economics from UC Berkeley.
