Flore Gubert ()

Revue d’économie du développement, 2017, vol. 25, issue 3, 29-44

Abstract: The paper provides an overview of the most recent results in the literature on the role of financial flows in the migration-development nexus. Drawing on the papers presented in the ?Migration and Development? conference, but not exclusively, the paper first highlights the main findings regarding the determinants of remittances. It also provides insights into the decision making mechanisms both at the individual and household level in terms of remitting behaviour. It ends with a synthesis of recent contributions on the developmental impact of remittances and some policy recommendations for development cooperation. JEL Codes: O15, F24, D82.
