Consequences of forced migration: A survey of recent findings

Sascha Becker () and Andreas Ferrara ()

Labour Economics, 2019, vol. 59, issue C, 1-16

Abstract: Forced migration as a consequence of wars, civil conflicts, or natural disasters may have consequences different from those of voluntary migration. Recent work has highlighted the consequences of forced migration on receiving populations, on migrants themselves and on sending populations. We document findings from recent work, on education and other economic outcomes, but also on political outcomes. We summarize key lessons and point to gaps in the literature.
