Transnational Labour Migration, Remittances and the Changing Family in Asia
It is the aim of this conference to explore how economic outcomes of transnational labour migration impact on family relations and structures in both empirical and theoretical terms. The discussion at the conference is expected to be around but not necessarily restricted to the following questions: - How do gender, marital and inter-generational relations mediate the family decision making about remittances? - How do economic costs and benefits of transnational labour migration affect family structure and (gender, marital and inter-generational) relations? - How do remittances in migrant-sending families, particularly in gender-differentiated labour migration uphold, reconstitute or transform gender norms and ideologies in labour-sending societies?
