South–North Refugee Migration: Lessons for Development Cooperation

Review of Development Economics, 1997, vol. 1, issue 1, 99-115

Abstract: Migration has become a major concern of European development policies. By improving socio–economic and political conditions through development cooperation, a reduction of South–North migration flows is envisaged. This new approach is examined by analyzing the causes of asylum migration from developing countries to Germany. The econometric findings suggest that support of democracy, economic development and trade will not reduce migration, at least not in the medium‐run. However, restrictive legal measures work. Migration control by international development cooperation therefore seems to need a long–term perspective.
