Co-national and cross-national pulls in international migration to Spain
Nina Neubecker and
International Review of Economics & Finance, 2013, vol. 28, issue C, 51-61
A large literature documents that migrants are attracted to destinations that already host migrants of their same nationality (co-national pull). Drawing on aggregate migration data from Spain, detailed by country of origin and province of destination for the period 1996–2006, we find that migrants are also attracted to destinations that already host migrants from nationalities that are adjacent to their own (cross-national pull).
