Abstract

In this paper, we consider a two-period model of migration and remittances as implicit contract in a context of asymmetric information. Our model offers new theoretical findings with respect to the previous literature on the main determinants of remittances. According to self-interest thesis, migrants make transfers in order to insure themselves against the risk of migration return. The low-skilled migrants are more likely to return to home country when informational symmetry is restored, then among others things, their optimal transfers is a decreasing function of the migrant's skill level and increasing function of the family’s wealth level
