Liv Bjerre provides a conceptual framework for the analysis of immigration policy effects by arguing that immigration policies have varying effects on different categories of immigrants whether they are regular immigrants, asylum seekers or irregular immigrants

Immigration policies have different effects on different categories of immigrants, this working paper aims at providing clarity on the categorisation of immigrants, the relationship between the different categories of immigrants and the effects of different immigration policies on these immigrants. The paper concludes by identifying five types of immigration policy effects: 1) admission effects, 2) deterrence effects, 3) deflection/substitution effects, 4) magnet effects and 5) a definition effect.
