Migration-induced Transfers of Norms. Political Empowerment?The case of Female Political Empowerment

Elisabetta Lodigiani () and Sara Salomone ()

No 2015:19, Working Papers from Department of Economics, University of Venice "Ca' Foscari"

Abstract: This paper empirically investigates the effect of transnational migrants on gender equality in the country of origin measured by the share of women enrolled in the lower chamber of National Parliaments. We test for a �migration-induced transfer of norm� using panel data from 1960 to 2010 in ten-year intervals. Total international migration has a significant effect on female political empowerment in countries of origin conditional on the initial female parliamentary participation in both origin and destination countries. Reverse causality issues are taken into account and results are tested under specific geo-political and temporal subsamples.
