"Moving Forward, Looking Back:
The Impact of Migration and Remittances on Sending Households
in Bukidnon, Philippines"

A lecture by

Dr. Agnes Quisumbing

August 14, 2007, Wednesday
4.30-6pm, SocSci Faculty Lounge


The lecture is based on a survey of women in rural Bukidnon. It deals with
the processes and uses of their remittances as a coping mechanism in the
face of their family's economic difficulties. It focusses on remittances
mostly by internal women migrants within the Philippines and not mainly
those by overseas workers, although there are a few international
migrants included in the survey.
