Migrant remittances have been noted for their development impact in
developing countries more especially among remittance receiving
households. Yet, the dynamics of remittance utilisation that
determine their effectiveness has somehow been ignored at the
household level. Remittance utilisation has become a social
activity, not merely an economic activity. This book, through
empirical findings submits that remittances evolve into a social
process, shaping household social relations and are in turn shaped
by existing family bonds, filial care and kinship ties. These ties
could be enhanced or diminished by the very ways remittances are
used. Therefore, this book provides a new context through which
remittances, which have been widely seen for their development
impacts, are evaluated.
