L'impact de la migration internationale sur l’économie marocaine


  • Mouhoud, El Mouhoub



The remittances have become an important source of finance in developing countries. The main objective of this thesis is to explain the reasons for making remittances. The second issue is to measure their impact on the household's well-being, as evaluated by the monetary and human poverty. We conclude that these flows reduce the number of poor and vulnerable households. They also can have fuelled a rise in income inequality compared to the counterfactual situation of no migration. Our results also indicate that remittances have a positive influence on parents' willingness to continue the schooling of their children especially if they are male. The third objective of this thesis is related to the return migration. We show the role of socio-demographics and economics factors in taking the decision to return
