报告人：Assem Abu Hatab
内容简介(Abstract)：Fueled by urbanization together with associated environmental and socioeconomic change, Egypt has witnessed rapid uncontrolled internal migratory movements during the past few decades. As it is the case in other developing countries, the study of internal migration in Egypt has received little attention, despite its increasingly recognized long-term impacts and inextricably links to sustainable development. Using data from the latest round a nationally-representative Labor Market Panel Survey conducted in 2012, we examined the determinants and welfare effects of internal migration in Egypt. The empirical results confirm that drivers and welfare effects of internal migration vary considerably in relation to different internal spatial movements, gender and age groups. Generally, the probability to migrate within the country is greater for younger, highly educated and individuals with non-permanent employment. Unsurprisingly, the results reveal that there is a higher probability for individuals to move to urban areas than to rural areas. In relation to welfare impacts, the study finds a significant positive effect of internal migration on migrant’s welfare. Especially, rural-rural and urban-urban types of migration were observed to be welfare enhancing. However, we found insignificant welfare effect of rural-urban migration. Conceding age and gender, the results suggest that females and older migrants are expected to achieve higher welfare gains from internal migration. These findings underscore important implications that may inform future research and policies for effective management of internal migration to make the most of its sustainable development impacts in Egypt and potentially other developing countries experiencing increasing internal migration trends.
