Title: Does Coordination of Immigration Policies among Destination Countries Increase Immigration?
Author: Rose Skaksen, Jan; Malchow-Møller, Nikolaj; Aastrup Jensen, Claus
Abstract: We set up a theoretical model to analyze the implications of coordination of immigration policies among destination countries. The model contains two types of spill-overs between destination countries: A terms of trade externality and a welfare policy externality. We show that while coordination unambiguously increases welfare of the destination countries, the effects on the level of immigration and on the income distribution of natives are ambiguous. Thus, coordination among destination countries does not necessarily solve the global coordination problem of inoptimally low levels of migration. Coordination, Externalities, Immigration Policy, Spill-overs, Terms of Trade, Welfare.
