The editors of Labour Economics are pleased to announce the 2017 winner of the 11th “EALE Labour Economics Prize” for the best paper published in Labour Economics during 2016:
Family migration and relative earnings potentials
Mette Foged, University of Copenhagen
Labour Economics 42 pp. 87-100
The paper has been selected by the editors as the 2017 winner of the annual “EALE Labour Economics Prize” for the best paper published in 2016. The paper studies the role of relative earnings potentials for family migration decisions. The panel found the paper was a very nice blend of theory and empirical evidence using unique data allowing for a reconstruction of family ties among both internal and international migrants. Contrary to much of the existing literature, the author finds that gender-neutral family-migration cannot be rejected against husband-centered migration, which the panel considered to be a novel and intriguing finding.
