Project Summary

With an estimated 214 million people - mostly from poor agricultural regions to more industrialized countries - international migration is a key concern in scholarly and policy arenas. This unprecedented phenomenon has wide-ranging consequences both for migrant-sending and receiving locations. This study focuses on one specific, but crucial consequence: the impact of labor outmigration on agricultural productivity in migrant-sending areas.
