Description: 

In this paper the author extends the bilateral Gravity Model of migration by Vanderkamp (1977) based on Newton's Law to a unilateral instrumental variable strategy for refugees, which is able to reflect time dependent shocks. Controlling for population size, trade openness, unemployment and the migrant stock in a panel data for subsequent members of the European Monetary Union in the short and mid run after the Balkan crisis leads to a signicant negative impact of incoming refugees on the host country's per capita income.
