Returnees From Migrant Labour: Welcome Home? - Issue 17
PDF File Size: 146 KB | Download   
The scale of Nepali work migration since the mid-2000 is unprecedented. In some villages of the Central Tarai it is said that every other family has a relative working in the Gulf countries. The overall economic benefits for Nepal have been acknowledged with remittances being estimated to form over 25% of the Gross National Income. At the local level, even moderate increases in income have been observed to dramatically improve the socio-economic status of migrants’ families. However, going abroad is a big investment and a significant share of migrants’ earnings goes to paying intermediaries and repaying loans and high interests accrued. This field bulletin focuses on returnees and their perspectives once they have returned home. It contrasts slow, painful but nonetheless positive material improvements with the often disappointing lack of skills gained from their work experience abroad. Many of those who return are not hopeful of reaching the same level of income while working in Nepal and many return to working abroad for long periods. Interviews in the field confirm recent statistical observations: Nepal’s extensive labour migration has deep effects on communities supported by remittances in rural areas, including a change in land use and an over reliance on remittances as main the source of family income.
