Abstract [en]

The consequences of immigration have been heavily discussed by researchers, economists, politicians and people in general. The existing literature regarding immigration and its impact on the economy is divided and looked upon through different perspectives. Therefore, it could be said that immigration and its economic impact on the host country is a controversial subject. The purpose of this study is to analyse the impact of immigration on the European OECD countries economy by looking at the unemployment rate and GDP per capita for two different time periods, those being 1985-2000 and 2006-2016, to see the effect of each time period and to compare the waves of immigration. The methodology used is a fixed effect regression. The results obtained were in line with the existing theory showing a positive impact or no impact at all of immigration on the unemployment rate and GDP per capita, but shared different results across time.
