Economic effects of migration. The effect of migration on the wages and employment of natives influences public opinion and attitudes towards migrants.  This in turn affects policymaking.  While the migration literature is growing fast, there are relatively few studies using UK data, and many other countries have few or no rigorous analysis of the effects of migration on the labour market.  Thus, topics such as the effect of migration on wages and employment, migration duration, migration assimilation, the effect of migration on pension, etc., are fruitful areas of research.
