Global Political Economy of Migrant Remittances

This article explores the negotiations in the Doha Round on Mode 4 of the General Agreement on Trade in Services to understand the global political economy of migrant remittances. Global institutional arrangements on migrant remittances are the least institutionalised area of the global economy since the developed countries want it so. The flexibilities allowed under the GATS Mode 4 are examined under three issues - low-skilled workers, removal of quotas for the highly-skilled migrants, and totalisation of taxes for all migrants.
