Migration, Remittances and Development in South Asia explores the
impact of migration on development in South Asian countries,
compiling extensive information on the migration flows and trends,
migrant remittances and migration policies. It discusses a number
of proposals for effective cooperation on protection of migrant
rights and promotion of migration and development linkages. Through
a nuanced look at the role of remittances in bringing about
development, it takes cognizance of the fact that remittances alone
are unlikely to lift people out of poverty; rather, it is their
interplay with other economic, social and cultural factors which
determines the scale and type of impact that remittances can have
on poverty reduction. The book also examines how migration should
be brought into the mainstream of development planning where
development must be understood as a dynamic process implying
growth, advancement, empowerment and progress, with the goal of
enlarging the scope of human choices and creating an environment
where citizens can live with dignity and equality.
