Holi 2013, the Netherlands

This project explores the ways in which skilled Indian migrants contribute to development through socio-cultural remittances, how they construe (trans-/national) identities and notions of belonging, and how these processes are envisioned/influenced by government policies in these countries.

Migration, Development and Citizenship is embedded in the research program of the VU Department of Social & Cultural Anthropology on Human Security. The project is funded through the NWO project “Migration, Development and Conflict”, which is coordinated by WOTRO Science for Global Development.

Throughout the project, knowledge and expertise has been shared through collaboration with the Asian Development Research Institute (ADRI) and IISH South Asia Desk at Ranchi.
