Topic of thesis: Behavioural Economics and Egyptian Illegal Immigrants to Europe

Abstract: The research aims to demonstrate and understand the behaviour of illegal migrants from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to Europe. Despite the weak probability of surviving, they pay large sums of money to move illegally to Europe, and this raises an important question which is; what makes the migrants’ decision rational while it- for most people- is irrational?  The reasons behind taking such risky decision of illegal migration by sea have been in a spot especially after the number of young Egyptians drowned in the Mediterranean Sea have been increasing dramatically. The main theoretical framework will follow the Behavioural Economics Theories and try to apply to several topics related to migration. This study tries to break into a new field of behavioural economics and illegal migration; behavioural economics is still a very new field, and my new insights are the intersection of economics and psychology. The first topic is the decision making of migration; the second topic is the rationality of the decision, the last topic is the change in the behaviour of immigrants in the host country.

Research Interests: Labour Economics & Migration, Behavioural Economics, Development Economics, and Economic Sociology.
