Migration, Restrictions and the Impact on Labour Market


  • Nae, Tatiana Roxana

    () (Academy of Economic Studies, Bucharest)


Migration is now at the forefront of European and national policy agendas. Therefore, it is important to remark that cultural and institutional barriers exist in migration between developed countries and the different regime of labour functioning proves that. This paper provides evidence for the role of quantitative and qualitative restrictions, presents a driving model of growth through migration channels and their impact on labour market and, most important, brings out an empirical analysis of migration within the OECD countries and Romanian migration to Canada. Following a simple decomposition of income growth, migration can impact on growth through labour supply, productivity and changes in transfers.
