Migration and Remittance Effects
Full course description
Is migration good or bad for the migrant receiving country and what effects does it have on the sending country? What about the money sent by migrants back to their home countries? Does this have only positive effects? These are some of the issues that are touched on in this class. Special attention is paid to labour market issues in the receiving country and development issues in the sending country.
The goal of this course is to explore both the positive and negative effects of migration and remittances in the migrant sending and receiving countries.
