    Video now available: 'Immigration and its effect on the local area' with Corrado Giulietti

    Corrado Giulietti gave the CPC seminar on 4 April 2019 on his study exploring the impact of local-level immigration on the location choices of UK-born residents.

    Corrado is Professor of Economics and Head of the Department of Economics within the School of Economic, Social and Political Sciences at the University of Southampton. Previously, he was the Director of Research at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) in Bonn, Germany. He is currently working within the migration strand of the CPC.

    In his seminar, he discusses the study aims, investigating three questions: a) does an increase in the inflow rate of immigrants causally lead to a displacement of UK-born residents? b) Does displacement increase segregation within a local authority? c) What are the prevalent mechanisms behind displacement, e.g. economic channels (such as labour market and house prices) or non-economic ones (such as attitudes towards immigrants)? To empirically analyse these questions, he matches data from Understanding Society The UK Household Longitudinal Study with statistics on immigrant inflows in the neighbourhood (middle layer super output area) from the National Insurance number allocations of the Department for Work and Pensions (NINo). The core analysis hinges on panel data fixed effects models.

    A recording of the seminar is available on the CPC YouTube channel:
