Bernt Bratsberg holds a PhD in Economics from University of California, Santa Barbara, and is Senior Research Fellow at the Ragnar Frisch Centre for Economic Research. He is also Adjunct Professor of Economics at the University of Oslo and Research Affiliate at the Centre for Fertility and Health, Norwegian Institute of Public Health. Prior to joining the Frisch Centre, he was Professor of Economics at Kansas State University. Professor Bratsberg’s main research interests are labor economics and the economics of migration, but his research record spans scientific disciplines and includes publications in leading journals in Demography, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology.
The 2015 European migrant crisis shifted media and scholarly attention to the economic and political integration of refugees. During the MUNI lecture, Bratsberg will draw on his recent research on refugees as well as family and labor migrants in Norway and discuss the merits of policies targeted at immigrant integration.
