Cutting refugees’ benefits results in more crime and less education

Reducing welfare benefits for refugees and immigrants is largely ineffective for increasing employment and promoting integration, and instead leads to poverty, ‘survival crime’ and less schooling, according to a new study from CReAM's Christian Dustmann and co-authors from the Rockwool Foundation.

This research received very high media attention in Denmark and has resulted in a public hearing (26.03.2019) and a presentation in the Danish Parliament.

Daniele Paserman

Daniele Paserman received his B.A. in economics and statistics from the Hebrew University in 1993, and his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University in 2000. He is currently a Professor of Economics at Boston University, a Research Affiliate of CEPR, and a Research Fellow at IZA and CReAM. His research on immigration looks at how the initial environment affects the educational and labor market outcomes of immigrants, both in the short and in the long run; how immigrants affect the human capital accumulation of native workers; how immigration affects the labor market outcomes of native workers, recognizing that the effect need not be uniform over time; and how highly skilled immigrants affect the productivity and investment behavior of firms. Most of this research draws inspiration from the large migration wave experienced by Israel since the fall of the Berlin Wall from the Soviet Union and other Eastern bloc countries. From this episode it is possible to draw important insights on the assimilation of migrants, on their impact on the host economy, and on other issues that are of central importance in economics and the social sciences, even outside of the Israeli context. Other lines of research include behavioral models of search in the labor and marriage markets, and a project on the dynamics of violence in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which attempts to use these dynamics to understand the strategies of militant groups and of the central government that is fighting against them.

Daniele Paserman joined CReAM as an external fellow in February 2007.
