Please note: This page refers to an event that has already taken place.

Time: Thursday, 31 March 2011 12:00-13:00
Place: PRIO, Hausmannsgate 7

Jørgen Carling and Cindy Horst will present a paper with results from "Remittances from Immigrants in Norway", a project funded by the Research Council of Norway. The paper, which is written together with Marta Bivand Erdal, examines how conflict in the country of origin interacts with other factors in shaping migrants’ remittance-sending practices. For this purpose, the authors compare the experiences of Somalis and Pakistanis in Norway, drawing upon survey data and semi-structured interviews with both senders and receivers of remittances.

 

Rojan Ezzati will chair the seminar.

 

Coffee/ tea and fruit will be provided at the seminar.
