Migration and Integration

Overview

The research group “Migration and Integration” undertakes empirical research on the causes and consequences of migration. The group specifically analyses the economic and social integration of immigrants, focusing on the importance of immigrants’ background. This includes analyses of the role of immigrants’ pre-migration labor market history, their cultural background as well as language barriers in facilitating or hampering their integration and assimilation. The key outcomes of immigrants’ integration we investigate are labor supply and wages, educational participation and success as well as non-economic outcomes such as marriage and fertility choices - thus unifying the core research areas of the superordinate research department “Labor Markets, Education, Population”.

While most research is directed towards the behavior of immigrants in the host countries, the research group also addresses the consequences of migration for the source countries. This includes analyses on the determinants of migration and immigrant selection as well as on the effects of migration on the households left behind.
