Remittances Review – an international peer-reviewed journal

The new issue of Remittences Review is available from Transnational Press London.  Remittances are a sum of money sent in payment for goods/services or as a gift.  In migration research, the term is used to describe money sent by immigrants to their home countries to support their families or to pay for costs related to migration.

Remittances ReviewAccording to the Remittances Review website: “Remittances Review publishes policy-oriented research and scholarship from Economics, Accounting, Finance, Sociology, Politics, Anthropology, Geography, and Law, and welcomes interdisciplinary contributions. International remittances are expected to top $2 billion a day before 2020, with two-thirds flowing to developing countries. Remittances reduce poverty in families that receive them, and can stimulate economic growth in migrant-sending nations. Remittances Review seeks papers with micro and macro analyses of remittance impacts as well as papers dealing with the remittance infrastructure or how individuals send small sums over national borders. The Remittances Review includes research articles, debates, conversations/interviews, book reviews, opinion and viewpoints and letters. Remittances Review is a high quality outlet for scholarly exchange and follows a strict editorial review policy with double blind reviews.”
