Remigration intentions and migrants' behavior

Remigration intentions and migrants' behavior
Remigration intentions and migrants' behavior
Using a unique French dataset, we analyze the relationship between remigration intentions and several immigrants’ behaviors in the host and origin countries
addressing the potential endogeneity of rem- igration intentions. We also investigate the potential trade-off and complementarities between various immigrants’ investment behaviors. We find that temporary migrants are more likely to invest in the country of origin but less likely to invest in the host country. Moreover, our results suggest a trade-off between immigrants’ investment in the home and in the host country.

Abstract

Using a unique French dataset, we analyze the relationship between remigration intentions and several immigrants’ behaviors in the host and origin countries
addressing the potential endogeneity of rem- igration intentions. We also investigate the potential trade-off and complementarities between various immigrants’ investment behaviors. We find that temporary migrants are more likely to invest in the country of origin but less likely to invest in the host country. Moreover, our results suggest a trade-off between immigrants’ investment in the home and in the host country.
