    The education motive for migrant remittances: theory and evidence from India

    Institute of Labor Economics, Bonn, 2017
    This paper analyses the impact of anticipated old age support, provided by children to parents, on intra-family transfers and education. The authors highlight an education motive for remittances, according to which migrants have an incentive to invest in their siblings’ education via transfers to parents, in order to better share the burden of old age support.
