Giacomo Battiston

About

My research interests lie at the intersection between development economics and political economy, with a particular focus on the economics of migration. In my work, I combine economic theory, structural econometrics and experimental methods.

My job market paper studies border enforcement in the Mediterranean Sea. It investigates the contradicting objectives of policy in managing migration flows, and the role of public and media attention in influencing policy decisions.

With coauthors, I am currently running a randomized controlled trial in the Republic of Guinea, where we investigate the impact of an information intervention on migration decisions.
