IZA Inaugural Migration Handbook Presentation: "International Handbook on the Economics of Migration"
Video of the Migration Handbook Presentation on September 18, 2013 in the Maria Curie – Sklodowska room of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw.
About the Handbook:
With the inescapable progress of globalization, labor markets are bound to become more integrated. The impending demographic disruptions will set in with full force in many countries within the coming years. Climate change, natural disasters and the rise of the BIC countries (Brazil, India, China) will pose additional labor market challenges. Ethnic diversity will continue to gain importance – as both an opportunity and a threat.
All of these will eventually require a global reallocation of resources, which will force international and domestic labor markets to undergo major adjustment processes. The strong demand for skilled workers along with the fight against extreme economic inequality, the creation of ‘good’ jobs, and the increased employment of specific groups such as the young, older, female, low-skilled and ethnic minority workers will need scientific monitoring and evaluation, in order to initiate necessary adjustment processes and labor market programs in time.
Therefore, migration economics is a fast-growing and exciting research area with very significant and rising policy relevance. This is also visible in the vibrant activities undertaken by the migration network organized by IZA. Quite timely, IZA has an entire research area devoted to migration.
While the scope of migration is extending persistently, there is no adequate authoritative treatment of its various branches in one volume. To close this gap, Edward Elgar has just published the first International Handbook on the Economics of Migration edited by IZA Program Director of Migration, Amelie F. Constant, and IZA Director, Klaus F. Zimmermann.
The new Handbook goes beyond providing basic information on migration. It offers the latest experiences on migration research and tackles frontier issues in the field. It provides comprehensive guidance to economics scholars, inquiring researchers, students of migration and policy advisers. This Handbook is a carefully commissioned and refereed compilation of 28 state-of-the-art chapters of research in the economics of migration written by 44 leading experts in the field.
Each chapter comprises a critical assessment of the status quo and presents challenges to the traditional economics of migration by addressing taboo issues. Structured in five sensible parts, the topics explored include: child labor migrants; immigrant educational mismatch; ethnic hiring; immigrants, wages and obesity; ethnic identities and the nation state; natural disasters and migration; immigration-religiosity intersections; immigration and crime; immigrants’ time use; happiness and migration; diaspora resources and policies; and the evaluation of immigration policies.
