FORUM-ASIA member in Bangladesh, Refugee and Migratory Movements Research Unit (RMMRU), published a book titled, ‘Impact of Migration on Poverty and Growth in Bangladesh’. Through panel surveys with more than 6,100 households over a three year period, the book analyses the impact of migration on poverty in Bangladesh. The research builds on earlier studies which concluded that migration reduces poverty, increases income and expands the range of goods and services consumed by a large section of those households who participate in international migration. Some interesting findings had emerged from the study. It shows that although rate of poverty may reduce, poverty status appears to be transient as opposed to permanent.
