From countryside to cities: Socioeconomic Impacts of migration in Vietnam


In September, 2011,  The Institute for Social Development Studies (ISDS),  published a new book: “From countryside to cities – Socioeconomic impacts of migration in Vietnam” by Le Bach Duong and Nguyen Thanh Liem edited.

This book is the final report of a unique and important research on socio-economic impact of rural-urban migrants on both home and host communities. Fieldwork were carried out in two provinces of high level of out-migration: Thai Binh (in the North) and Tien Giang (in the South); and two major destination for rural-to-urban migration, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city.

The key purpose of this research is to assist change of the conventional discourse on migration away from negativity towards relative positivity (i.e. migrants are in fact productive actors and contributors to development process). The researchers believe that by documenting important measurable contributions of migrants to poverty reduction at left-behind villages and to urban economy at places of destination, an enabling setting and momentum will be created for government’s and society’s acceptance of the needs to protect migrant’s rights, ease their integration into the mainstreams at urban destinations, and maximize positive impact of migration on both sending and receiving ends.
