About the project
The question how migrants cope in a context of increasing inequality will be explored in different dimensions: (1) the contributions of technology, trade and migration to the evolution of labor market inequalities; (2) the gender dimension in labor market outcomes of migrants.
Subproject 1: Trade, Technology, and Migration:
Research questions: How do trade and technology affect labor market inequalities, distinguishing workers between natives and migrants and by skill levels?
Do the effects of immigration on the labor market differ in the presence of free trade?
Subproject 2: Labor Market, Migration, Gender, and Inequality
Research questions: How do natives and migrants’ labor-market participation and performance vary by gender and level of educational attainment? What are the changes over time?
