Migration Matters

Thoughts on migration policy

Is there a wall high enough so nobody will try to climb over it? No? Then Alan Manning proposes that maybe it is time to rethink restrictive migration policy that is more concerned with managing the numbers instead of the consequences of migration.

Look out for...

  • positive and negative impact of immigration:
    – effects on the labour market opportunities
    – effects on society
    – effects on living conditions
