Selective Immigration Policies, Migrants' Education and Welfare at Origin

Simone Bertoli () and Herbert Brücker ()

No 5395, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute of Labor Economics (IZA)

Abstract: Destination countries are progressively shifting towards selective immigration policies. These can effectively increase migrants' average education even if one allows for endogenous schooling decisions and education policies at origin. Still, more selective immigration policies reduce social welfare at origin.
