New article on relative deprivation and migration by Hein de Haas and Mathias Czaika

Reduction in relative deprivation and inequality is unlikely to result in a major decline in international migration
IMI Co-Director Hein de Haas and Senior Research Officer Mathias Czaika have published a new article in the journal Oxford Development Studies.
It explores the role of internal (within country) and international (bilateral and global) relative and absolute deprivation in international migration. It is argued that these three forms of relative deprivation need to be taken into account simultaneously to advance our theoretical understanding of the complex drivers of migration processes.
This article draws on research undertaken as part of the DEMIG (Determinants of International Migration) project.
