Abstract:
This thesis examines the lived experiences of ten male return migrants in
line with the ongoing discourse on the gendered implications of return and
reintegration. Specifically, the study discusses the male return migrants’
concerns about and strategies toward their reintegration together with the
cultural dimensions as they re-embed and re-orient themselves into the
domestic, extended family and community spaces in their Bicol homeland. The
narratives link the lived experiences of the male return migrants to the
ongoing discourse on migrant men and masculinities using Connell and
McKay’s notion of hegemonic masculinities and Levitt’s concept of social
remittances. The findings indicate that male return migrants form and
comprehend their meanings and/or notions of return and reintegration as
shaped by the existing social structures through the “embedded culture of
migration”. This refers in particular to male role expectations, lived
experiences during their migration journey, the various material and social
remittances in play during and after labor migration, and family and
community responses. Implications of the findings for improved local
government and civil society organization policies and programs are
represented in the conclusions and recommendations.
