Listen to this podcast from the 1 March seminar

This seminar 'All the money I raised, I raised from Ghana': Understanding reverse remittance practice among Ghanaian migrants in the UK and their relatives in Ghana was presented by DPhil student Geraldine Adiku on 1 March. While remittances are too often conceptualised as sent by migrants from 'developed' to 'developing' country, Geraldine's research investigates the other side of transnational economic exchanges between migrants and their relatives - reverse remittances. In the context of Ghanaian migrants in the UK, the research reveals that transnational economic transactions between migrants and their relatives are driven by their different access to various forms of capital and their motivations for migration, and it is these factors that influence whether a migrant will send remittances or receive reverse remittances instead.
