Demographic Trends and Consequences of Labor Migration

Monday, 11 July 2016: 16:00-17:30
Location: Elise Richter Saal (Main Building)
RC41 Sociology of Population (host committee)

Language: English and Spanish

Mobility of people is a phenomenon in the globalization era. Labor migration can be both a solution and a problem to the great demographic divide between the receiving and donor countries. While it is true that migrant labor in the form of remittances have helped close the economic gap between developed and developing regions, there are social costs for the families of labor migrants left behind. 
This session welcomes papers on a wide range of topics: from those that deal with the characteristics of labor migration flows and trends in recent years across all the regions (developed and developing) in the world, migration data on the demand and supply of emerging skills, the working-age population, gender distribution of labor migrants, and other evidence of new and enhanced migration to those that deal with issues such as complementation and substitution between migrant and native workers as well as the social cost of labor migration.
