Abstract

This is an explanatory case study that uses a mixed method research design to investigate the social impact of migration on the country of origin. While recognizing that the effects of labor migration on the sending country vary greatly depending on the size of flows and type of migrants, the study reveals issues that result from migration particularly for small developing states. Aside from the positive effects of migrant remittances, which are rather substantial in solving problems in the short-term, the study considers the long-term effects of labor migration on the families left behind. Factors considered include health, education, and social that often produce negative effects in the communities of the home country.
