Labour Markets

How do international migration and labour markets affect each other in high- and low-income countries? What is the impact of immigration on wages and employment conditions, and how does the nature of the labour market affect the demand for migrant labour?  COMPAS research on migration and labour markets engages and integrates theories, methods and research from a range of relevant disciplines including economics, politics and sociology.
