This Development Seminar @ Brookings India is on the topic, “Immigration and its Discontents: International Migration after Brexit, Brussels, and Trump” with speaker Dr. Neeraj Kaushal (Professor of Social Policy, Columbia University).
Abstract: Immigration has become a hot button issue. From Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, and Germany to Singapore, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, it is churning electoral politics. A hundred years ago, similar discontents resulted in severe restrictions on immigration. Will history repeat itself? Neeraj Kaushal will discuss the primary drivers of these discontents, whether and how these discontents are related to immigration, and how they would shape the future of international migration.
