Part of the International Economic Association Conference Volumes book series (IEA)

Abstract

Immigration, by bringing into contact two populations previously apart, causes the deepest perturbations and creates serious social and political obstacles which hamper international mobility. This analysis is divided into two parts:
  1. 1.

    Fears caused in a receiving country by the prospective immigration of aliens;

     
  2. 2.

    Adaptation and assimilation of immigrants to their new surroundings.
