Why is it important?

Unique in that it estimates the effects of immigration by the origin/type of the immigrant and by the group of natives. Not all effects are created equal. The special settings allow an accurate estimation of the effects in question, without having to worry about threats to estimation and identification (like internal migration or endogeneity). The positive effect (complementarity) of Palestinian workers on the wages of Israeli Arab workers that this study finds is surprising, and alters the way we perceive and understand that interaction, with possible positive implications on the future of peaceful joint employment.
