Migration, Remittances and Changing Sources of Income in Rural Bihar (1999–2011)

Some Findings from a Longitudinal Study

This paper draws on work carried out jointly with Sunil Mishra, Gerry Rodgers, Janine Rodgers and Alakh Sharma under a research programme on inclusive development in rural Bihar at the Institute for Human Development, New Delhi. An earlier version of the paper was presented at a seminar on Migration, Care Economy and Remittances at the Centre for Development Studies, Thiruvananthapuram during 17–19 September 2014. I thank an anonymous reviewer of this journal for helpful comments on an earlier draft of the paper.
