The Labour Market Model

The Labour Market model looks at the connection between Labour Markets and Ethnic Segmentation (LaMESt Model).

The focus is on international migrants and the low-skill labour market (but it could easily be adapted to look at other groups).

How and why international migrants are incorporated into labour markets has important effects on the future development of both migrant communities and wider society.

The model helps us to understand how issues such as discrimination, language proficiency and social networks influence the development of LMs.

The Labour Market Model has potential use as a ‘sandbox’ for developing and testing the impacts of policies.
