Project Details


As a large share of the world's refugees arrive to low and middle-income countries, there is increased debate of the economic effects on already-strained economies. By contrast, results froma strand of the literature strongly suggest some positive economic impacts: migrants foster exports in the receiving country. Of course, refugees likely face many contrains that limit these effects in practice. In this proejct, we seek to assess what these constraints are, and to what extent policy intervention can help alliviate them, by studying the situation of deportees from the Dominican Republic in Haiti, after a massive deportation peak in 2015-2016.
