Migration Impact Assessment: A Review of Evidence-Based Findings
This paper aims to introduce Migration Impact Assessment (MIA) as a new methodological tool to estimate the socio-economic impacts of migrants on local, regional or national economies. Two approaches are presented here, viz. empirical macro studies and meta-analytical studies. The overall results suggest a modestly positive impact of migration on the economies of host countries or regions.
