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.

Eran Yashiv

Professor Eran Yashiv is a macroeconomist, mostly interested in issues regarding the labor market. His research spans a number of themes including search and matching in the labor market (which was the major topic of my work in recent years), the labor market and financial markets, immigration issues, and exchange rate economics. He is a research fellow at the Center for Economic Policy Research (based in London), at the Centre for Economic Performance of the London School of Economics (London) and at IZA (based in Bonn). Over the past two years he has been a consultant to the Bank of Israel on issues regarding Israeli Arabs in the labor market. This is an ongoing project involving both academic, empirical work and policy prescriptions. He is also involved in other policy‐related activity: he was the head of the Macroeconomic team at the 17th annual Caesarea conference (2009), and he has been consulting at the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Employment on various occasions. He is the Chair of the steering committee of the Vacancies Survey of the Central Bureau of Statistics. Additionally, he has published numerous OpEd pieces in Haaretz and The Marker. He teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in the fields of Macroeconomics, International Monetary Economics, Public Sector Economics, and Labor Economics.

Eran Yashiv joined CReAM as an external fellow in June 2010.
