Professor Jackline Wahba has been awarded an OBE for services to Economic Policy.

Professor Wahba is Professor of Economics at Southampton, having obtained her PhD in the subject from the University before pursuing her long academic career. One of the leading voices on the economics of migration, she has published extensively on its global impact and leads the migration research within the ESRC Centre for Population Change at Southampton. A member of the UK Migration Advisory Committee since 2012, she has recently been elected as member of the Council of the Royal Economic Society.

“I am delighted to receive this great honour and very pleased to have my work recognised in this way,” Professor Wahba enthused. “I am truly grateful to all the colleagues I have collaborated with over the years without whom I would not have been able to achieve this unexpected honour.

“I would also like to especially thank the University of Southampton for supporting me throughout my career and enabling me to contribute to the study of Economics, in particular that of the economics of migration, and Economic Policy,” she continued.
