What are the microeconomic impacts of migration and how to address the challenge of identifying them? What is the relationship between migration, other dimensions of globalization, and development? What are the public finance and demographic effect of immigration for the host countries? What are the effects of immigration on the labor market? What are the barriers to immigrants’ assimilation?
