    Jackie Wahba reappointed to Migration Advisory Committee

    CPC member, Professor Jackie Wahba, has been reappointed to the UK Home Office sponsored Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) for a further two years until November 2020.

    Chaired by Professor Alan Manning, the MAC is a non-departmental public body that provides transparent, independent and evidence-based advice to the government on migration issues. This includes: the impacts of immigration; the limits on immigration under the points-based system; and skill shortages within occupations.

    First appointed as a Non-Executive Board Member of the MAC in 2012, Jackie has also advised national governments and international organisations, including: the World Bank; the Organisation for Economic Development and Co-operation; the International Labour Organisation; the International Organisation for Migration; the European Training Foundation; and the European Commission. She leads migration research at CPC, and is a Professor of Economics at the University of Southampton. Her work was recently profiled as part of the University of Southampton's Research Highlights.

    "We would like to offer our congratulations to Jackie on her reappointment to the Committee," says Professor Jane Falkingham, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Southampton, and Director of CPC. "It's excellent that a member of the University of Southampton and CPC is able to contribute their knowledge and experience to this vital area."

    You can also watch Jackie discussing her work on the 'Costs and benefits of international students' at a University of Southampton public lecture held in London on 19 October 2018, and read more on this research with CPC members Jane Falkingham, Corrado Giulietti and Chuhong Wang on international students in the UK in our latest newsletter, Changing Populations.
