Abstract

This study examines and analyses the phenomena of unskilled temporary male labour migration from Bangladesh to Malaysia by focusing upon the decision making process, its economic and social impact at the point of origin, and the significance of the role of networks at origin and destination. This analysis contributes to the knowledge on transnational migration flows particularly focused on the attributes studied in the topic. It is anticipated that this study is generate insights and deeper understanding of how the migration decision making process operates, how risks, costs and benefits are assessed by the household unit, to what extent temporary migration is a result of livelihood diversification strategies and how important social networks and social capital reduces the costs and risks of migration. The theoretical analysis and empirical outcomes provides a conceptual model between developing nation to developing country unskilled labour migration process and consequences. Moreover, the findings from this study contribute to migration policies and programs of both the sending and receiving countries by a deeper understanding of this phenomenon, its theoretical underpinnings and the formulation of relevant Government policies and programs pertaining to the international migration of workers.
