Differences in the Labour Market Behaviour Between Temporary and Permanent Migrant Women
This paper analyses labour market behaviour of married migrant women. The theoretical analysis shows that migrants who intend to remain only temporarily in the host country are likely to exhibit a different labour market behaviour than migrants who wish to stay permanently. The reason is that temporary migrants condition their behaviour in the host country on the future expected economic situation in their home countries. In the empirical part, labour market participation behaviour of married female migrants is analysed, using data which allow for differentiation between individuals who intend to remain permanently and those who intend to remain only temporarily. The results show that temporary migrants have indeed a different labour market behaviour than permanent migrants.
