Labour Migration
Throughout the region, economic dislocation has led millions of adults in the prime of their working years to uproot themselves and undertake difficult, even perilous, journeys in search of subsistence for their families and communities.

The poorest countries in the region are increasingly dependent on these migrants’ foreign remittances.
