Web Anthology on Migrant Remittances and Development
- 7 August 2012
The second edition of the Anthology on Migrant Remittances and Development is now available online. The first edition was published on the website of the Social Science Research Council (New York) in 2009
IMI Co-Director Hein de Haas is one of the editors of this anthology.
This new edition offers a collection of articles that are based on empirical research and provides insight into key conceptual, methodological, and theoretical issues relevant to researchers and policy makers who seek to understand and enhance the developmental impact of remittances.
The most substantive change that the editors have introduced to the second edition is an expanded exploration of the effects of remittances on social aspects of development (including gender relations and family cohesion) and a new section that examines socio-cultural (non-monetary) remittances. A small number of articles have been transferred between topics, others have been replaced with more recent articles, and more than twenty new articles have been added.
