- Master Thesis 
Today immigration affects most us in some way. In this thesis it is the effects which immigration has on the domestic labor market which is in focus. With basis in a Norwegian outlook the question I wish to answer is “what affects migration and does immigration affect the labor market?“ This by looking at what type of migration there is, what affects the immigration level and in turn how it affect the labor market. I also look closer at some of the models which try to find the expected negative effect from immigration. I find that EEA/EU immigration is likely to have the largest effect in a Norwegian context. In general it seems difficult to estimate the true effect of immigration, though when comparing competing skill groups in the market directly one can find some negative effect on the indigenous‘ labor outcome.
