This paper examines the role of labor migration and remittances in shaping group participation and social networks in village economies left behind. By using an original household survey containing detailed information on family migration status, group participation and inter-household informal exchanges from two regions in the south of Mozambique, we find that households with successful migrants, i.e. those receiving remittances or return migration, engage more in community based social networks. (pp. 26-7).A draft is here.
