Within the framework of the REMINDER project, Marcus Österman, Joakim Palme and Martin Ruhs analyse whether and how the fiscal effects of EU migrants vary across European countries with different institutional regimes. They explore whether variations in the fiscal effects of EU migrants are associated with cross-country differences in welfare state and labour market institutions. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first cross-country empirical analysis of these issues. Distinguishing between five different institutional regimes covering 29 countries, the analysis of the links between national institutions and the fiscal effects of EU migrants is made possible by a unique new data set on the fiscal effects of EU migrants across almost all EEA countries (Nyman and Ahlskog 2018).
The REMINDER project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 727072.
