Peo Hansen. professor of Political Science Nedzad Mesic

He gets the award for his book “A Modern Migration Theory: An Alternative Economic Approach to Failed EU Policy”. that was published in 2021.

The book has received good reviews. Read one of them:

“A timely book on the supposed trade-off between migration and the sustainability of the welfare state. Hansen's skilful debunking of the 'sound finance' view demonstrates that there is no 'fiscal burden' when it comes to migration. Migrants are an essential part of the workforce and contribute to the economy. Hansen successfully rewires our thinking about migration and the economy. I highly recommend this superb book.” Dirk Ehnts, Institute for International Political Economy, Berlin
