To better predict the impact of unrestricted and restricted labor migration, the paper analyses several models that take into consideration the skill composition of the
migration workforce, labor market inflexibility in receiving countries, and trade. Considering these variables, the thesis comes to the following conclusions: from an academic perspective, the impact of migration is still controversial. Some theoretical and empirical studies find very small wage and employment effects of migration, others show considerable large impacts. Also for Germany it is unsure if there is really cause for concern. However, recent studies show that migration barriers, like in Germany, are often insufficient to prevent negative wage and employment
effects. Other policy options have to be taken into account.
