Essais sur les transferts internationaux des migrants: une approche macroéconomique

Abstract : This thesis brings four contributions to the literature on international remittances, using a macroeconomic approach. The first contribution empirically examines the macroeconomic determinants of remittances by investigating the response of remittances to the macroeconomic conditions of host and home countries, using panel data on 14 Latin American and Caribbean countries. The other three contributions are about the macroeconomic impacts of remittances. The second essay quantitatively evaluates the role of remittance shocks in explaining the macroeconomic fluctuations of Senegal, using a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model. The third contribution empirically investigates the impact of remittances on real exchange rate, using panel data on CFA Franc zone countries. Finally, the fourth essay empirically examines the effect of remittances on macroeconomic volatility of 87 developing countries with a particular focus on the interaction between remittances and financial development.
