The interplay of migration and labour markets is a phenomenon too diverse
to be explained by a single theory. Thus, this volume, based on
contributions presented during a workshop in Saarbrücken, Germany, brings
together experts in migration research from economics, political science,
and sociology.

The rationale for choosing the topic is the existence of misconceptions
and prejudices in public debate about migration. The contributions
investigate the main effects of migration on labour markets for both, the
home and the host country, and discuss normative, positive, and
instrumental aspects of migration from different perspectives.
