MetadataShow full item record
This thesis reports findings from a Migration and Remittance study conducted among 654 households across 3 districts of Timor-Leste in 2010. A mixed methods design was adopted employing a cross-sectional household survey combined with interviews. Findings highlight that internal migration and remittances are having a positive impact on human capital and household expenditure. This research contributes to the limited knowledge on remittance flows in post-conflict and transitional nations.
