In recent years, a gradual convergence has been observed in labour mobility between Europe and the United States, reflecting both a fall in interstate migration in the United States and a rise in the role of migration in Europe. In this introductory chapter, Vella offers an overview of recent migration trends in European countries. The state of the art in the macroeconomics of migration is then summarised. Finally, Vella synthesises the findings of the various chapters included in this volume and discusses how the content of the volume can be read together.
