This roundtable brings together three interrelated research topics on the affects of migration on rural livelihoods and families in Central Asia. Antje describes how migration affects children's welfare and intra-household decision-making when the household has a migrant. Her research demonstrates that having a migrant in the household increases children's household duties and decreases school enrolment rates, particularly for girls. Bakhrom’s research investigates how community- and household -based social networks are affected if people migrate and leave their communities. Lira’s research explores how the remittances of external labor migrants are one of the major sources of household income in rural areas of Kyrgyzstan. Her study demonstrates that remittances serve as livelihood strategies of migrant households: they are spending on their daily needs as well as making investments (e.g. education, business and so on).
