Hein de Haas

Hein de Haas, 2023 Hein de Haas (born 1969) is a Dutch sociologist and geographer who has lived and worked in the Netherlands, Morocco and the United Kingdom. He is currently Professor of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). His research is focusing on the relationship between migration and social transformation and development in origin and destination countries. He is a founding member and co-director of the International Migration Institute (IMI) at Oxford University, and directs IMI nowadays from its current base at UvA. He is also Professor of Migration and Development at the University of Maastricht.

De Haas is lead author of ''The Age of Migration: International Population Movements in the Modern World'', a leading text book in the field of migration studies. His 2023 book ''How Migration Really Works: A Factful Guide to the Most Divisive Issue in Politics'' has been translated in German, Dutch, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Greek and Korean. He maintains a blog on migration-related topics.

Hein de Haas has argued that "much conventional thinking about migration is based on myths rather than facts". He has argued that, contrary to conventional views, economic development in poor countries lead to more instead of less migration. He also argued that - in the face of "systematic demand for labor migration or conflict in origin countries" - "to a certain extent, migration is inevitable". Hein de Haas has argued that there has been an incompatibility between economic liberalization and labour market deregulation on one hand and political calls for less migration on the other.
