Skilled Migration: The Perspective of Developing Countries
Frédéric Docquier () and
No 2873, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute of Labor Economics (IZA)
This chapter focuses on the effects of skilled migration on developing countries. We first present new evidence on the magnitude of the “brain drain” at the international level. Using a stylized model of education investment in a context of migration, we then survey the theoretical and empirical brain drain literature in a unified framework. Finally we use a particular specification of the model to discuss a number of policy issues from the perspective of developing countries.
