Abstract:
Over the last three decades labour migration to the Gulf and South East Asian countries has emerged as an important source of livelihood for rural Bangladeshis. Households which have a small amount of land and/or good social and kinship networks send one or more members abroad to diversify the pattem of household earnings and activities. The context is one in which men migrate abroad to work in unskilled and semi-skilled jobs and women stay back in the villages to look after the households.
