Pew Research Center Lecture on ‘Trends and Attitudes towards Migration Globally’


Distinguished Colleagues,
The Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) is pleased to host Dr Neil Ruiz from Pew Research Center on a lecture of ‘Trends and Attitudes towards Migration Globally’

After more than a decade of research on immigration in the United States, Pew Research Center has intensified its exploration of international opinion of migration, as well as global migration and demographic trends.

In this session, Dr. Neil Ruiz, will present newly released findings on what the public in 27 nations thinks about immigration and offer new demographic analysis of migration patterns. In addition, he will examine trends in high-skilled migration in key labor markets. As the number of international migrants reaches new highs, people around the world show little appetite for more migration – both into and out of their countries, according to a Pew Research Center survey of 27 nations conducted in the spring of 2018. However, roughly eight-in-ten U.S. adults (78%) support encouraging highly skilled people to immigrate and work in the U.S., a percentage that roughly matches or is exceeded by Sweden, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and Australia.

In this presentation, Dr. Ruiz will explore these findings and discuss some currently unpublished research on international attitudes toward migrants in major destination and sending countries.

The lecture will be held as follow :

  • Date    :  18th April 2019
  • Time    :  9.00 – 10.00 am
