'Lack of economic analysis has long reduced the intellectual and practical value of research on refugees. This book makes a major contribution to filling that gap. Its rigorous but accessibly presented applications of economic theory and econometrics to forced migration and related policies shed new light on key issues, and will stimulate others to do more research of this type and quality.' - Professor Adrian Wood, Department of Economics, Oxford University, UKVom Verlag:
This book inquires the determinants of forced migration, describes the distribution of burdens from forced migration across countries, and analyzes the strategic interaction of national refugee policies to control refugee flows. Emphasis is put on the role of asymmetries between countries with respect to their preferences regarding immigrants, the costs incurred by immigrants, their stage of development and especially their geographical position as neighboring first asylum country or Western asylum country. Special attention is given to one policy instrument to control refugee migration flows, namely foreign aid.
The book attempts to answer questions such as: What are the driving factors of forced migration movements? How can refugee burdens be assessed and compared across different types of host countries? Who are the actors in international refugee protection and management, and how do they act? And finally, how does the phenomenon of international refugee movements, and specifically how do asylum seekers, influence the aid allocation politics of Western industrialized countries?
