RMMRU will be initializing its much anticipated panel survey research Impact of Migration on Poverty and Development in the coming week. Impact of Migration on Poverty and Development, supported by SDC, is a ten year research project that will cover 5000 migrant and non-migrant, internal and international, female and male households. RMMRU has chosen 40 interns from diverse fields of study for its field research teams and recently completed a successful two days of training orientation on November 22-23. Areas of low, medium and high level migration communities around various areas of Bangladesh will be surveyed for the first stage Impact of Migration on Poverty and Development.
Over the course of the past eighteen years, RMMRU has accumulated a large amount of valuable research. Most of this research has gone into developing relevant papers, however only a handful of these papers are actually published. Subsequently, we have a bunch of research that is currently inaccessible to the public. Recently we decided to change that. For the next few months we will be releasing a working paper from our archives every Wednesday. Check out the ones that have been released so far below!
