The economics of refugee flows

With some notable exceptions, the Australian public debate over refugees has so far been conducted largely in an evidence-free zone. So I’ve asked my colleague Tim Hatton to send me through his recent writings on the topic. Tim has written two papers for high-ranking economics journals on the factors driving asylum/refugee flows. He’s sent me a recent powerpoint, plus an article he wrote for the AFR on this topic a couple of years ago (the numbers may have changed since then, but the fundamentals of the analysis haven’t).
