Abstract

Este trabajo estudia los factores que inciden sobre (i) el envío de remesas, (ii) las conexiones de los emigrantes con Colombia y los colombianos, y (iii) el deseo de regresar el país. Sus principales conclusiones son las siguientes: (i) el envío de remesas no disminuye con el tiempo de residencia en el exterior, (ii) las conexiones de los emigrantes (tanto con su país como con sus compatriotas) tampoco disminuyen con el tiempo y son superiores para los emigrantes con menores niveles educativos, y (iii) el deseo de retorno disminuye durante los primeros años pero luego se estabiliza en niveles superiores a 50%.
