Economics Undergraduate Dissertation – Alleviating Search Frictions in the Labour Market: A case study of the Finnish Koto-SIB

Serena Grover .
Undergraduate Student, School of Economics

The funding will allow for paid access to Finnish unemployment data, which is required to evaluate the effectiveness of the Koto-SIB integration policy in matching immigrants with job opportunities. The data will validate whether the economic model being created for this undergraduate dissertation, successfully predicts the program’s outcomes on the Finnish labour market. The mechanism of this program is extremely unique, allowing private investors to take on the risk of public investments – something that has not been trialled to this scale before, but could prove vital in bridging the finance gap for the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
