Interview is in Dutch.
In his doctoral trajectory, Martijn relates two topics that have started to receive much attention in academics and public discourse: Migration and happiness. In an article published in Migration Studies, he reviews all research findings on two crucial questions: (1) do migrants become happier through international migration? and (2) do migrants become as happy as 'natives' in the host country? He finds that international migrants often, but not always, become happier. However, migrants do not reach similar happiness as the native population.
Every last friday of the month in Spring 2016, a talented researcher linked to the Erasmus University Rotterdam will present work on a happiness-related topic. There are some changes in the set-up of the seminar. The one-hour seminar will be in H12-30 and start at 15:30. As always, we will have drinks and snacks afterwards.
Erasmus Happiness Economics Research Organisation (EHERO) has granted the first Ruut Veenhoven Award for happiness studies to dr. Jan-Emmanuel De Neve, associate Professor in Economics and strategy and fellow at the University of Oxford. He received the prize for his outstanding and innovative research, and the jury praised the originality, rigor, and breadth in his work, which has been published in top journals such as Science, Psychological Science, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
