Abstract

This paper analyses the effects of immigration on three small remote European Union regions located within Scotland (East Highlands), Greece (Heraklion-Archanes) and Latvia (Latgale). The results indicate significant differences in the extent to which regional economies are affected by immigration. They also suggest that remote regions are highly vulnerable to the out-migration of skilled workers (‘brain-drain’), while thein-migration of unskilled workers leads to widening wage inequality
