Aims of the Summer 2020 Issue
International migration, triggered by globalization and economic integration, is a dynamic demographic phenomenon of high complexity and with multiple facets and implications. The movement of individuals at the global scale is generated by an increasing variety of reasons, such as the individuals’ need for jobs, inequalities in health, well-being or income across regions, but also war, civil strife or climate change. However, economic associated factors are still the main migration reason for the larger part of migrants as there are more than 150 million migrant workers in the world, according to the latest estimates. The economic implications of migrations are of high relevance at individual, regional and macro level, as proven by a large literature on migration economics. However, current trends related to circulatory or return migration, changes in migration gender or skills composition, as well as fast development of some countries such as China or changes in the EU composition, reshape the migration landscape and suggest the need for revisiting the existing evidence on migration impacts.
We invite submissions for a forthcoming Summer 2020 issue of Journal of Social and Economic Statistics on the topic of International Migration and its Socio-Economic Effects in Developing Countries. Both empirical and theoretical papers involving statistical and econometrical tools will be considered.
Content will be relevant to policy makers, academics and students interested in migration and more generally to migration policy practitioners in regional and global communities.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
International migration for labor
Remittances and economic growth
Foreign direct investments and migration
Migration impacts on social security and pension systems
Migration and agriculture
Urbanization and inter-regional dynamics of migration
Return migration in the changing global context
