Professor Martin Kahanec (DPP) completes his US tour with a seminar at New York University

Kahanec @Princeton

Martin Kahanec (DPP) gave a research seminar about whether and how free mobility of workers may have helped an enlarged EU to cope with asymmetric shocks during the Great Recession at New York University on December 17, 2014.

This was the final seminar of his US tour on the free movement of workers in an enlarged European Union. Before NYU, seminars took place at Princeton, Rutgers, and George Washington University.

Kahanec specifically focused on how institutional factors – EU enlargement and labor market access – affected the mobility of workers and hence EU’s capacity to absorb asymmetric economic shocks and whether post-enlargement migration flows responded to economic shocks.
