Migration Case Studies


The Migration module currently features four geographical case studies based on the ideas and theories presented in this conceptual framework:


1. Case study: How do labor migrants participate in the economy? Drawing on examples and data from European studies, this case study focuses on how immigration relates to population growth and the issue of illegal immigration from less developed countries (in this case, from Africa) to wealthier countries. 


2. Case study: How and why do migration experiences vary for different ethnic groups? This case study from the United States examines the role of immigration policies and the global economy and the effect these have had on immigration from Asia and Latin America to the U.S.


3. Case study: What are the economic effects of internal labor migration on urban and rural places? This case study explores in detail the patterns, causes and consequences of internal migration in Chile.


4. Case study: Why does gender matter in migration? Using a variety of data and examples from Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries, this case study investigates the gendered nature of immigration, looking at the different issues affecting female migrants from that region.
