In a globalising market, labour migration in low-skilled sectors plays an important role. A growing number of poor people move between their villages of origin, capital cities, and international destinations, while financially sustaining their families and home countries. The positive role of remittances for alleviating the poverty of sending countries is widely acknowledged. However, migration also leads to a growing imbalance between rural and urban areas and certain unfavourable societal changes. Drawing on case studies in Central and South Asia, this issue of evidence for policy examines the challenges of making migration safer and more beneficial for low-skilled workers.
