International Journal of Manpower, special issue on “Migration, the Welfare State, and European Labor Markets”, Vol. 34, No. 1+2, (2013)
A special double-issue of the International Journal of Manpower with Martin Kahanec as a guest editor (with Alan Barrett and Klaus F. Zimmermann) has just been published by Emerald. The double issue features two articles co-authored by Martin Kahanec, one on the „Pitfalls of Immigrant Inclusion into the European Welfare State“ (with Anna Myung-Hee Kim and Klaus F. Zimmermann) and another one on „Unemployment Benefits and Immigration: Evidence from the EU“ (with Corrado Giulietti, Maritn Guzi and Klaus F. Zimmermann). The latter article provides new evidence on the welfare magnet hypothesis, refuting the myth that welfare generosity leads to increased inflows of migrants. The article has been extensively covered by major European media, including The Guardian, Handelsblatt, or Die Welt.
