The objective of this critical and methodological survey is economic research on migration issues among European and more generally among Anglo-Saxon scholars and to focus on the themes which could be usefully expanded upon in analyses of migration from and to the CIS countries. The survey covers in a very unbalanced way the three main migration research areas: the migration choice, which attempt to answer the question: why people move; the effects of immigration in the country of destination and its implication for migration policies and the effect of emigration for the country of origin the most challenging and least developed of these three. For all areas the main economic approaches and the variables use, the methodoly and the main results are reported. More attention is devoted to the research field which seems most relevant for the CIS countries and the methodological focus is meaning to make the text as understandable as possible to all social scientists, not only to a small circle of econometric addicted.
CARIM-East is co-financed by the European University Institute and the European Union.
