On migration and immigration policy in Europe, vol 3
in KCV Schriftenreihe from FOM Hochschule für Oekonomie & Management, KCV KompetenzCentrum für angewandte Volkswirtschaftslehre
To which countries do people migrate? What role does income play in drawing migrants to certain countries? This essay attempts to answer these questions. It also presents a comprehensive overview of migration theories as well as worldwide trends in migration. Shrinking populations in high-income countries indicate that a demand for migrants exists. Empirical data on 155 countries shows that migration to a specific region can be explained as a function of income or per capita gross domestic product (GDP) of this country. It establishes the direction of flow of migrants from low-income to high-income countries. Regulating the demand for and supply of migrants together in the European context requires government intervention in the form of a more comprehensive, legal and unified migration policy.
