Workshop on ‘Labour Migration and Social Change in South Asia
27-28 March 2017, 9:30 a.m
Though the movement of people in pursuit of work is not new, labour migration appears to be a growing phenomenon in the South Asian region. Empirical studies and papers analysing government data have shown that migration is not a simple movement from village to city in this region, but involves multiple streams and patterns including short-term, iterative, permanent and return migration across short and long distances. This workshop explores aspects that link human mobility and social transformation in sending and receiving communities, especially in the context of labour migration.
Organised by the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) and the French Centre for Social Sciences and Humanities (CSH) as well as supported by the Tata Trusts’ SHRAMIC initiative, this workshop has been conceived as a platform for young researchers, scholars and practitioners to share their work and receive feedback from experienced and knowledgeable experts. The 15-odd papers being presented have been selected from over 70 entries in response to a call for papers in December 2016 and represent the work of young researchers across the South Asia region.
