AbstractThis policy brief proposes a fee-based entrance system to control migration flows. By integrating economic and migration theory, the proposal rests on the observations that current migration policies are unfair and inefficient. A fee-based entrance system could control migration flows while satisfying labour market demands, satisfying state requirements and respecting human rights. This brief is based on the IMISCOE publication Migrants and Markets: Perspectives from Economics and the Other Social Sciences by Holger Kolb and Henrik Egbert (eds) (Amsterdam University Press 2008).
