Czaika investigates internal and international remittances
- 4 July 2013
In a new article for the Journal of Development Studies, Mathias Czaika examines the dynamics and drivers of remittances.
The article 'Drivers and Dynamics of Internal and International Remittances' examines how remittances may, if at all, change the longer a migrant is away, and depending on the migrant's destination.
Using the data from the 64th round of the Indian National Sample Survey, conducted between July 2007 and June 2008, IMI's Senior Research Officer and James Martin Fellow, Mathias Czaika, and co-author John Spray, find that the volatility of intra-household remittances is distinct across migration destinations, with international remittance flows being more volatile than internal intra-state or inter-state flows.
