Network Effects in International Migration: Education versus Gender

Michel Beine () and Sara Salomone ()

CREA Discussion Paper Series from Center for Research in Economic Analysis, University of Luxembourg

Abstract: This paper analyzes the impact of networks on the structure of international migration flows. In particular, we investigate whether diaspora externalities are dif- ferent across education levels and gender. Using new data including both dimensions, we analyze the respective impact of networks on the proportion of each category of migrant. Therefore, in contrast to the preceding literature on macro determinants of international migration, we can identify the factors that influence the selection in terms skills and in terms of gender. We find that network effects vary by education level but not by gender.
