    El aumento de los flujos migratorios y la importancia de los flujos de remesas hacia países emergentes han motivado desde los años 70’s el estudio de los determinantes de las remesas. El primer paso para acercarse a este problema es entender las motivaciones microeconómicas de los agentes que deciden enviar dinero a sus familias en el país de origen. Este documento hace un repaso de literatura que se han desarrollado para describir los incentivos de los migrantes a enviar remesas. Se hace un análisis microeconómico desde 3 enfoques: el de decisión individual, el de arreglos familiares y el de motivos mixtos.
