India Migration Report 2014 is one of the first systematic studies on contribution of diasporas in development, in countries of origin as well as destination. This volume:
examines how diasporic human and financial resources can be utilized for economic growth and sustainable development, especially in education and health;
offers critical insights on migrant experiences, transnationalism and philanthropic networks, and indigenization and diaspora policies, as well as return of diasporas; and
includes case studies on Indian migrants in the Gulf region - in particular, Bahrain, Oman and Saudi Arabia - and the United Kingdom, among others.
With essays by major contributors, the volume will interest scholars and researchers on economics, development studies, migration and diaspora studies, and sociology. It will also be useful to policy-makers and government institutions working in the area.

`Too little is known though about migrants, and the effects their mobility has, for themselves, their communities, and economies, and too often policies either ignore or try to reduce migration. The IMR has become a critical source to fill this lacuna to better understand migration and providing concrete suggestions for policy makers.' - Arjan de Haan, International Development Research Centre, Ottawa, Canada
