Abstract: R �ed M. and S ch�ne P. Displacement and immigrant workers' responsiveness to regional labour market opportunities: evidence from Norway, Regional Studies . This paper answers two main questions. First, are immigrants more mobile than natives following job displacement? The results show that immigrants are indeed more mobile than natives following job displacement; however, the difference is fully explained by a compositional effect - immigrants have much shorter potential work experience in Norway than natives. Second, are immigrants more responsive than natives to differences in regional labour market opportunities following job displacement? The results show that displaced Western immigrants are more responsive to differences in regional labour market opportunities compared with both non-Western immigrants and natives. The greasing effects are limited to immigrants with low mobility costs.
