Women on the Move: Harnessing the Economic Force of Cross-Border Mobility in ASEAN

Year: 
2015

Women on the Move highlights the important role played by remittances in improving social protection and in achieving broader development objectives such as education in the migrants’ home countries. In particular, remittances empower not only the women migrants who send them but also the women family members who receive remittances back home. Since women migrants also face greater gender-specific challenges and barriers than male migrants, development partners should put in place initiatives tailor-made to the needs of this population.
