      The primary goal of the paper is to propose a methodology to govern migration flows in an economically efficient and humane way. The proposal will introduce an alternative interpretation of economic migration flows that will allow for the classification of countries in potential departure and arrival countries, and more importantly to explain arrivals.

He holds a PhD from the University of Munich and has studied at the Institute for Advanced Studies, Vienna, (Programme in Economics), and the Odessa State University of Economics (Masters Degree).

        Dual labour market theory. According to this theory, the labour market is composed of self-contained sub-markets or segments. Segmentation economists argue that ignoring the different identities of these segments and the constraints they place on the workers makes it impossible to understand the nature of labour market disadvantage. This book is a commanding assessment of labour market theory across the social sciences. It provides a radically original critique of labour market theory, which draws constructively but critically on existing literature. The work: * contributes to the debates on key issues in labour economics such.

Launov, Andrey, "An Alternative Approach to Testing Dual Labour Market Theory," IZA Discussion Papers , Institute of Labor Economics (IZA).Author: Imran Sarihasan. The concept of a dual labour market is part of the wider umbrella of labour market segmentation – some analysts believe the market is split into far more than two sectors.

An alternative approach to testing dual labour market theory by Andrey Launov Download PDF EPUB FB2

In this paper we suggest an alternative approach to testing for the dual structure of the labour market. The novelty of the suggested approach is that rather than considering wage determination we concentrate on the turnover. To perform the test we suggest using a latent class count data framework, which allows modelling the turnover in the unobserved primary and secondary markets.

This alternative approach is based on the hypothesis that the labor market is divided into two separate and virtually self-contained parts, the primary and secondary segments of the labor market.
