Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Several studies have examined the effect of remittances on economic growth, poverty, education, and governance, among other factors, in developing countries with inconclusive results. Using annual panel data of 99 developing countries in various empirical models, this study aim to answer the question how remittances affect a broader aspect of development using the Human Development Index as dependent variable. The findings indicate that there is a positive relationship between remittances and the level of human development in developing countries.
