About the Course

The course offers an insight into how various economic theories of migration have evolved, beginning from the classical theories to the more recent New Economics of Labour Migration (NELM).

The course will familiarise the participants with both Macro- and Micro-economic theories of migration such as the Classical, Neo-Classical, Keynesian, Marxian, Dual Labour Market and other theories. It will help participants understand how a migrant is placed in relation to wage differential, employment, remittances, etc.

The course also aims to offer a broader overview of various databases related to labour and migration. It will explain databases used for labour and migration centric research such as NSSO, Census, and Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS).  While providing an overview of the two PLFS rounds, the comparability of the PLFS rounds with the previous ‘Employment and Unemployment’ NSSO rounds will also be discussed.


The workshops are for early-career researchers. Candidates should have a master’s degree in any discipline of social sciences and humanities. They should preferably be enrolled either in the MPhil/PhD programme or teaching in a college/university.
