New book on migration and economic growth
- 7 August 2012
IMI's Mathias Czaika, together with Carlos Vargas-Silva, has edited a new book in Edward Elgar's 'The International Library of Studies on Migration series'
This book comprehensively examines the role of economic growth (or lack of) as a driver of migration, as well as the impact of migration on economic growth in receiving and sending countries. Seminal papers have been selected which cover both direct and indirect effects, as well as theoretical and empirical contributions. This important collection, along with an original introduction by the editors, provides a combination of the classical works and topics with the latest contributions and discussions. It is a comprehensive introduction for those interested in learning about the topic and an excellent source of reference for experts.
‘Czaika and Vargas-Silva have curated a collection of classic studies combined with a few lesser-known interesting pieces that together provide a must-read overview of the range of important topics linking migration with economic growth.’
