Migration and Labour Markets in the Social Sciences

Edited by: Henrik Egbert, Clemens Esser

The interplay of migration and labour markets is a phenomenon too diverse to be explained by a single theory. Thus, this volume, based on contributions presented during a workshop in Saarbrucken, Germany, brings together experts in migration research from economics, political science, and sociology. The rationale for choosing the topic is the existence of misconceptions and prejudices in public debate about migration. The contributions investigate the main effects of migration on labour markets for both, the home and the host country, and discuss normative, positive, and instrumental aspects of migration from different perspectives.
