Dr Zovanga L. Kone

Lecturer in Economics


My research pertains to issues related to migration and labour market outcomes. It has looked at the impact of migration on the labour market of the host and origin countries, the integration of migrants, in particular refugees, in the host’s labour market. Relatedly it has also looked at the drivers/impeders of internal/international migration, as well as the efficacy of visa policies in achieving its objectives.

My work addresses questions such as: what are the impact of immigration on wages? Could migration lead to brain gains rather than brain drain? Why might people not migrate even if they face no visa barriers? How do migrants fare in the host country? Do visa policies achieve their objectives?
