KERALA RETURN EMIGRANT SURVEY 2021: WHAT NEXT FOR RETURN MIGRANTS OF KERALA?

Published on November 19, 2021

Details

This report concerns emigrants who returned to Kerala between May and December 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. We document the experiences of 1985 return emigrants (REM) through a quantitative survey conducted via Computer Assisted Telephonic Interviews (CATI). While the REM have been a demographically, politically and economically significant component of Kerala’s population, the COVID-19 REM represent a unique case in history that has the potential to not only affect the economy, society, and psyche of Kerala for many years to come, but to also provide valuable insights into the future of global labour migration governance.
