Skilled migration: the perspective of developing countries

Frédéric Docquier () and Hillel Rapoport

No 3382, Policy Research Working Paper Series from The World Bank

Abstract: The authors focus on the consequences of skilled migration for developing countries. They first present new evidence on the magnitude of migration of skilled workers at the international level and then discuss its direct and indirect effects on human capital formation in developing countries in a unified stylized model. Finally they turn to policy implications, with emphasis on migration and education policy in a context of globalized labor markets.
