Skilled Migration: The Perspective of Developing Countries

Frédéric Docquier () and Hillel Rapoport

No 2873, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute of Labor Economics (IZA)

Abstract: 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.
