THE IMPACT OF IMMIGRATION ON THE WORKFORCE: THE PROS AND CONS OF IMMIGRATION
This chapter is an attempt to seize in economic terms the deepest reasons of the recourse to immigration: which players, both inside and outside of the receiving countries, benefit from it? Which are the effects of mass immigration on the economy? It shows that the importation of workforce immigration was primarily a temporary immigration concentrated on the industry (up to the seventies), and became later a settlement immigration focusing on the services (from the eighties on).
