Passages of Fortune: Exploring Dynamics of International Migration from Punjab, Routledge

Published on June 1, 2021

Details

The book examines international out-migration from North India, focusing on the state of Punjab. It is the first-ever empirical exploration of the causes, processes, patterns and consequences of international out-migration based on a robust sample of 10,000 households drawn from both rural and urban areas. The volume explores a range of issues such as current migration, return migration, remittances, reverse remittances, diaspora philanthropy, migration consultancy services, international marriages, campaigns for safe migration abroad and future emigration plans. It also addresses questions surrounding the use of paid labour by households to replace the work done by the emigrants and studies villages as the migration setting.
