Background

This seminar will feature Dr Hyunjoo Yang of Incheon National University who will discuss the impact of rising immigration in Seoul on the location decisions of natives. Using a novel dataset, he will show that immigration inflows are both a push and pull factor for natives in terms of their choice of neighborhood. He will explain that while neighborhoods in Seoul lost more than five natives for every ten additional immigrants between 2006 and 2015, certain native workers were drawn to areas with immigrant inflows for job-related reasons.
