International migration affects the growth and development prospects of developing countries in a number of ways. A first impact is due to the non-random selection of individuals into migration. The fact that migrants are typically younger and more educated that the average worker in the country of origin, and that migrants self-select according to political views, ethnicity, etc., can affect the sending economy through compositional changes in the workforce and the general population that can in turn affect wages, the supply of skills (including through additional incentives to invest in education in a context of migration), inequality, and other socio-economic outcomes. Second, once abroad, migrants continue to affect the sending economy through a series of feedback effects such as monetary remittances, the role of migration and diaspora networks in fostering trade, financial investments and knowledge flows between home and host countries, return migration, and the transfer of social norms and values.

The course will focus on the following channels: the self-selection of migrants, remittances, brain drain and globalization, and political remittances. At a theoretical level we will aim at conveying the intuition of the mechanisms at work using simple economic models. At the empirical level we will discuss the results from selected studies. The course is organized in four 3-hour sessions, each on a specific topic. For each session there is a list of required and suggested readings. Students must prepare for the class by reading the required articles ahead of the class.
