European Economic Review Title PageOur QuantMig colleagues and team members, Valentina Di Iasio and Jackline Wahba, have published an article in European Economic Review, on "Expecting Brexit and UK migration: Should I go?". The article is available, through open access, from the journal website, and the underlying research is presented in QuantMig Deliverable D3.2.

In the paper, the authors examine the impact of the 2016 UK referendum and the expectations of Brexit on migration flows and net migration in the UK. The results show that, after the referendum, migration inflows from the EU declined, and emigration of EU nationals increased. These results are robust, not being driven by the potential spillover impacts on non-EU migrant workers, and confirm that the number of EU migrants in the UK has declined after the Brexit referendum even before any policy change took effect.
