Evaluating migration policy effects and effectiveness
Mathias Czaika, Full Professor in Migration and Globalisation, Danube University Krems, Austria
The effectiveness of immigration policies is the object of controversial academic and public debates. We will discuss why migration policies are often perceived as ineffective despite having significant effects on migration and mobility. Based on some conceptual considerations about how to approach and measure immigration policy effects, we will assess recent empirical findings on the effects and effectiveness of migration policy on international migration and mobility flows.
