    s) Report from Washington-based Migration Policy Institute on impact of global recession, two years on, available from http://www.migrationpolicy.org/pubs/MPI-BBCreport-2010.pdf. The Unemployment gap between immigrants and the native born has widened in many countries (Germany being a notable exception), with wide variations by country. The gap proved largest in Spain, rising to 12.2 percent in the second quarter of 2010 compared to 4.4 percent before the recession’s onset. The toll has been particularly hard for migrant men, who are often concentrated in the sectors that experienced the most serious contractions (notably construction and manufacturing) and immigrant youth (ages 15-24). Unemployment among foreign-born youth has reached 41 percent in Spain, 37 percent in Sweden and 20 percent in Canada. By contrast, immigrant women have fared better than immigrant men in almost all wealthy countries. The report has particular focus on Germany, Ireland, Spain, the United Kingdom and United States and also finds that certain immigrant groups and minorities have lost the most ground economically during the recession: Pakistanis and Bangladeshis in the United Kingdom, North African and Andean immigrants in Spain and Hispanics in the United States. Among the study’s other findings: Overall immigration to developed countries has slowed sharply as a result of the economic crisis; Are immigrant-destination countries now becoming countries of emigration? E.g. Ireland and Greece, may be reverting to earlier trends; Immigrant-receiving countries have not resorted to protectionism and Long-term high unemployment predicted for migrants.
