"Migration Impact on Moroccan Unemployment: a Static Computable General Equilibrium Analysis "
by Karam, Fida and Bernard Decaluwe

Recently, much research interest is directed towards the impact of migration on the sending country. However, we think that this literature does not successfully analyse migration effects on unemployment and wage rates especially in urban areas. It studies the effect of one kind of migration flow, mainly international migration, on labour market in the country of origin and shows that international migration is able to reduce unemployment rate and/or raise wage rate. However, it is common to find labour markets affected simultaneously by inflows and out- flows of workers. Using a detailed CGE model applied to the Moroccan economy, we show that if we take into account simultaneously Moroccan emigration to the European Union, immigration from Sub-Saharan Africa into Moroccan urban areas and rural-urban migration, the impact on Moroccan urban labour market disaggregated by professional categories is ambiguous.
