This literature review discusses links between the presence of minorities and economic outcomes at the individual, economy and cross-country levels. Drawing on a large number of related studies, we highlight consistent facts and arguments that can guide integration policies and unleash the potential of ethnic diversity for growth and trade. We conclude with what can be done to harness ethnic diversity in order to strengthen economic ties, both within and across countries.
