Countries have several hundred bilateral employment contracts (BLAs) that monitor the conditions under which countries of origin send migrant workers to host countries. What has not been fully explained or empirically tested is why countries would sign these agreements. We conduct a statistical study of these agreements using an original data set of 582 BLAts concluded between 1945 and 2015. We find that the standard declaration for BLAs – which they are probably created when potential host countries are considerably richer and more repressive than potential countries of origin – applies to host countries in the Middle East, but this model does not apply to other countries that have created BLAs. We also find evidence that countries that join the BLAs experience greater migratory flows than those that do not, although we are not in a position to verify whether the BLAs are responsible for this difference . . . . 1111 E. 60th St.Chicago, IL 60637 United States773-702-0425 (phone) 773-702-0730 (Fax) .
