INTERNATIONAL IMMIGRATION AND ITS ECONOMIC IMPACT ON THE LABOR MARKET IN HOST COUNTRIES 
Abstract:   (854 Views)

According to the latest census conducted by the United Nations, currently about 213 million people, i.e. more than 3 percent of the world's population, live outside the country of their birth. The great mobility of the population has definitely different effects on host countries’ economy. The labor market along with commodity, capital and money markets as one of the main pillars of the economy, has a significant role and more than any other market is affected by demographic trends in the international scale. Reverse effects of immigration on wages and employment levels in the labor market of the host country, as well as the distributive effects and rising inequality in income of natives are among the most important consequences that have been provoked economists around the world to conduct related theoretical and empirical studies. Due to the important nature, we need to examine and review the theories and literature in this field and provide an experimental study to be conducted in our country. In this review study, first, the effects of international migration on employment, unemployment and wages have been studied from a theoretical perspective and then the migration adjustment mechanisms were discussed. In addition, some studies in the field of labor market effects from migration with an emphasis on the effects on employment and unemployment as well as effects on wages, along with statistical results obtained are presented.
