This special section on ‘‘Offshoring and the labour market’’, draws on papers presented at the Final Conference held at Bocconi University, Milan, on September 24–25, 2013 on ‘‘Production, R&D and knowledge offshoring: economic analyses and implications for Italy’’, with the aim to address some of the gaps discussed above. In particular, the three articles selected for this Special Section investigate: – The effect of immigration on firm performance. – The effects of offshorability of tasks on wages. – The moderating role of institutions in the relationship between offshoring and labour market.
