Migration and Trade: A Complex-Network Approach
AbstractThis paper explores the relationships between migration and trade using a complex-network approach. We show that: (i) both weighted and binary versions of the networks of international migration and trade are strongly correlated; (ii) such correlations can be mostly explained by country economic/demographic size and geographical distance; (iii) pairs of countries that are more central in the international-migration network trade more.
