    Title You, me, or us? Conjugal separation and parent-child separation in family migration: A case of rural Thailand
    Publication Date 2010
    Abstract The tenet of New Economics of Labour Migration is such that households are able to control risks to their economic well-being by diversifying the allocation of family labour to different labour markets. In essence, it introduces the idea that family members do not necessarily migrate together, but may send one or more members off as migrants. In a context of family migration, this research aims to understand the determinants of four different types of family migration i) father, mother and children migrate together, ii) father migrates alone, iii) mother migrates alone, and iv) both father and mother migrate, but leave their children behind. Using Stark & Fan (2007)�۪s theoretical framework which suggests a trade-off between the drive for higher income and consumption from migration and resulting separation that follows, this study investigates determinants of such trade-off and looks at different characteristics of parents, children, household/family�۪s structure and how these might influence different family migration types.
