Using longitudinal data from refugees in Germany, GMC Director Giovanni Peri and coauthors Michele Battisti and Agnese Romiti found that "immigrants in districts with larger co-ethnic networks are more likely to be employed soon after arrival. This advantage fades after four years, as migrants located in places with smaller co-ethnic networks catch up due to greater human capital investments." The paper was recently published in Oxford University Press' The Economic Journal.
