    Migration and Mobility

    Overview

    This research examines the effects of the current economic crisis on international migration, from both a theoretical and an empirical perspective. Interest lies in understanding how migrants fare relative to natives during/after a recession. Key questions include: (i) Are migrants more likely to experience unemployment compared to natives? (ii) What are the labour market implications for differential patterns of wealth accumulation within the country of destination? (iii) Do migrants rely more on personal networks during a recession relative to other times? If yes, why? (iv) Are migrants likely to accept jobs for which they are under-qualified during a recession?

    Focusing on the UK, the research team examines the effects of the recession on both labour market outcomes and wealth accumulation patterns across different migrant groups. Focusing on the role of subjective income expectations in immigration and in return migration during a recession, they are producing a new dataset with researchers in the Paris School of Economics (PSE, France) and CNRS (France), collected as part of the quantitative survey 'Mode de Vie des Francais' project which longitudinally links data between 2002 and 2014. Through this, they aim to shed light on the extent to which income expectations differ from actual pay before, during and after a recession, and whether the decision to return could be determined by the gap between actual and expected earnings.
