Abstract
In recent years, remittances have emerged as an important external source of finance for most developing countries, Cameroon inclusive. The debate on international migration and development has been widely discussed across academia and given a considerable attention by researchers, policy makers, stakeholders and governments. Departing with the premise that remittances conduct development, this study has investigated the perceptions of Cameroonian migrants in southern Sweden on their remitting experiences vis-à-vis development which centred mostly at the micro-level.

In recent years, remittances have emerged as an important external source of finance for most developing countries, Cameroon inclusive. The debate on international migration and development has been widely discussed across academia and given a considerable attention by researchers, policy makers, stakeholders and governments. Departing with the premise that remittances conduct development, this study has investigated the perceptions of Cameroonian migrants in southern Sweden on their remitting experiences vis-à-vis development which centred mostly at the micro-level.
For an in-depth investigation of the topic, this study employs a qualitative research method and shed more light on an insightful discussion on remittance flow. From the collection of field data for this study, incorporated with the review of related literature and a theoretical framework discussion, the incentives for remitting, problems faced /attempted solutions and strategies to make remittance flow to Cameroon more rewarding are explored. Findings from this study show that even though remittances (money) is the driver in facilitating developmental projects, it is not only the economic but also the socio-cultural variables that equally play important roles in the development process of the local areas where remittances flow to.
