The Contribution of Circular Migration to Economic Growth in Developing Countries

In: Proceedings of FIKUSZ '15

    () (West University of Timisoara)


In this paper I am especially interested in exploring the impact of circular migration on the developing countries, the benefits and the vulnerabilities brought about by migration in its circular form and the effects it has on the economic growth of the sending countries. The objective of this paper is to explore the underpinnings of circular migration and contribute to a better understanding of the phenomenon as a form of evolved temporary migration. I show both the positive and negative influence of circular migration in the developing economies and I emphasise how new forms of circular migration arise when the proper conditions are met.
