Kyrgyzstan’s capital Bishkek as well as Russia and Kazakhstan are major destinations for migrants from mountain areas in southern Kyrgyzstan. While some migrants return home with new skills, many people start to put down roots in other places. Livelihoods take on a multilocal dimension when people have responsibilities in different places. Impacts on rural development are remittance dependency, increasing labour shortage and a changed social care situation.
