In this paper we investigate the relationship between immigration flows and internal mobility in Italy during the period 2003-2011. Using semiparametric negative binomial gravity models with smooth spatio-temporal trends, and dealing with endogeneity issues through a control function approach, we provide evidence of a significant negative (or displacement) effect of new foreign immigrants on the internal mobility of foreign-born residents and of Italian citizens with a low education level, as well as a significant positive (or complementarity) effect of new foreign immigrants on the internal mobility of Italian citizens with a high education level.
This seminar has been jointly organized by FEEM, IEFE-Bocconi University and The Department of Economic Policy-Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore
