The Global Migration Center, joint with University of California Alianza MX, organized the 2nd Summer School on the "Economics of Migration" on September 11-14, 2023, in Mexico City.
In the morning, each faculty member delivered a lecture on the frontier of research in their specific topic. In the afternoon, students presented their own research ideas or drafts and received feedback from faculty. The school's atmosphere encouraged conversation and feedback in small groups. Students and faculty shared meals together, fostering the development of mentoring relationships and networks among peers.
