Migrant Remittances Newsletter Vol. 3 No. 2
The August 2006 issue of Migrant Remittances presents the latest news on remittance flows based on new research from Germany, Serbia, and the United Kingdom. Policy interest in remittances grows unabated, with dialogue among members of the Group of Eight and at the United Nations. Changing the regulation of international financial transfers may have implications for migrants and businesses in Europe and the United States. From a commercial perspective, too, the financial industry evolves apace, developing new services and products to target migrants. Guest writer, Elizabeth McQuerry, explains the role of automated clearinghouses in international money transfers. The newsletter reviews literature that explores the differences between men and women when it comes to sending remittances.
