Preliminary assessment of impact of labour migration from South Asia on the South Asian employers

— theme: Labour migration policy, Migration and development
— country: Bangladesh

This particular study was undertaken based on discussions held during a meeting of the South Asia Forum of Employers (SAFE) on 3-4 October 2013 in New Delhi, India. The Bangladesh Employers’ Federation (BEF), taking the lead from the SAFE discussions, collaborated with ILO for this study. The study researched the reasons behind migration, the costs and benefits of migration, and impacts of migration on origin and destination countries, by reviewing theories and existing empirical studies. To understand the key research question of impact of migration on employers, an exploratory approach is used. Our objective is to understand the targeted respondents’ opinion better to do more rigorous research in future. Mostly open ended questions are used for this purpose. Guided by this research we can attempt to quantify responses to statistically inferable data. Based on review of existing literature and survey, policies are recommended for government, employers and employees.
