Comte, Emmanuel, and Anna Kyriazi. ‘Insights into Migration with Macroeconomics: An Interdisciplinary Assessment.’ In: Jordi Caballe, Joan Llull, and Eugenia Vella (eds.), Understanding Migration with Macroeconomics. London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2020.
We use the findings in the volume to gain insight into the best way to connect the macroeconomics of migration with research in history and political science. We show that macroeconomic analysis could help develop the economic history of migration, the history of the European Union, and the history of the conflicts surrounding immigration. Conversely, we propose integrating into macroeconomics the historical and political construction of labour markets. We also detail how increasing politicisation of migration with gradually eroding political borders calls for innovative thinking to transcend disciplinary boundaries.
