It depends: Unpicking the development impacts of migration in Asia

Nov
11
08:30 to 10:00
Seminar

Asianettverket welcomes to a seminar on development impacts of migration in Asia, and how we can make sense of them, with professor Jonathan Rigg (University of Bristol). The seminar explores why migration ‘optimists’ and ‘pessimists’ find such rich empirical pickings in the mobility landscapes of Asia. 

Drawing on work across rural areas of Southeast (Thailand, Laos and Vietnam) and South (Sri Lanka and Nepal) Asia, I seek to shed light on the mixed developmental origins, effects and impacts of migration on people, communities and environments. The seminar will highlight the simple but important point that migration is a process with no natural propensity for enabling and generating good or bad change; context is everything.
