Drawing on a qualitative study of senders of remittances among a group of UK-based senders, Professor Nicola Yeates and Dr Owusu-Sykere highlight key aspects of remittance sending practices and the social contexts (including of social protection) that generate, propel and sustain sending. They draw attention to the importance of transnational family and kin networks as a factor in sending dynamics and international development finance more generally, and highlight the importance of a transnational perspective for understanding contemporary work and welfare in Britain and beyond.
