Migrant inflows and outflows are a key element for the socio-economic development of a country. This paper aims to contribute to this on-going debate and to the empirical literature on the determinants of international migrations. Italy represents a case study of particular interest, given the size and rapid growth of immigration flows, the high number of countries of origin involved, and Italy’s considerable economic and social heterogeneity. Besides, as far as we know, there is norobust evidence on several factors potentially influencing migrations, especially to Italy. Findings are that Italy attracts migrants predominantly from geographically-close, middle-income countries and from democratic regimes.
