Migration and Intergenerational Solidarity: Evidence from Rural Thailand

Migration and Intergenerational Solidarity: Evidence from Rural Thailand

Publication Abstract

PDF Knodel, John E., Jiraporn Kespichayawattana, Suvinee Wiwatwanich, and Chanpen Saengtienchai. 2007. Migration and Intergenerational Solidarity: Evidence from Rural Thailand. Bangkok: UNFPA.

This publication examines the impact of out-migration from rural areas in Thailand on intergenerational solidarity. With increasing migration of young adults from rural areas to the towns and cities, Thailand offers an interesting case to examine the implications of migration for maintenance of relationships among family members of different generations. The Report provides extensive evidence from the first systematic survey focusing specifically on this issue. It thus provides a unique basis for assessing the complex implications of out-migration on older parents remaining behind in rural areas.
