A number of scholars are currently arguing that migration
may have an important role in the reduction of inequality. It
has happened before and it may also happen in the future,
as it is possible and desirable. However, migration in itself
does not resolve the issue of inequalities. At most, it would
shift it forward, because redistribution through immigration
does not exempt from previously creating a basic set of rules
and institutions aimed at stimulating a major cooperation by
countries to change the legal management systems of
migration and correct their redistributive effects. In light of
these studies, the present paper focuses on the regional
impact of internal migration and attempts to demonstrate,
with reference to the Italian case, how out-migration can
increase income inequalities, thus hindering economic
growth, while immigration can reduce income inequalities
and mitigate economic imbalances. From a juridical point of
view, we study the regional restrictions related to residence
workers protection, the free movement of European workers
and the welfare benefits for migrants.
