Does Coordination of Immigration Policies among Destination Countries Increase Immigration?
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.
