"Merit-Based" Immigration: Designing Successful Selection Systems (DC)

Friday, May 17, 2019 - 09:30 to 11:00

The conversation between Jean-Christophe Dumont, Head of the International Migration Division at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and Migration Policy Institute (MPI) President Emeritus Demetrios G. Papademetriou will focus on what policymakers should consider in designing—and managing—immigrant selection systems in a time of intense labor-market and demographic change. The discussion will rely on recent MPI and OECD research on this topic, focusing primarily on the Canadian and Australian selection systems. MPI’s Julia Gelatt will comment on the conversation from a U.S. policy perspective, discussing how lessons from abroad could apply to the United States.
