Nepal is one of the countries where remittances in proportion of the GDP are the highest with 28,8 per cent in 2013. A total of 7,2 per cent of Nepal’s population are found abroad and the remittances that they transfer back have been recognized to play an important role in reducing poverty in Nepal, even though critics argue that these remittances are only spent and not invested. The two aims of this thesis are to analyse the impact from migration and remittances and to what extent these reduces poverty within the Nepali society. This thesis is critically analysing the impact of migration and remittances and argues that the global demand and need of cheap labour to the developed industrial societies will continue to attract and pull migrants out of their countries of origin and could act as an equilibrium to prevent this migration process to backlash. Nonetheless further research, and time, is necessary to measure the long-term consequences of migration and what the total impact of this never-ending demand could be for the Nepali society. (Less)
