Analyzing the Role of Diaspora Remittances in Establishing Economic Resilience to Displaced Families in Mogadishu

Abstract:

Migration has been one of key policy measures in the world, especially with the waves of migrants in finding better living conditions in their host countries. The migrants who are also known as the diaspora have been sending remittances. In Somalia remittances are known to contribute extensively to the survival of the economy. While the diaspora are migrants who successfully fled the country, there are also many internally displaced persons (IDPs) trapped in the country. They have been forced to seek asylum in sprawling camps due to food insecurity, conflict or even natural disasters. This study is an exploratory research that tries to understand the role of diaspora remittances in giving economic resilience to the IDP families. There has been little prior research that have been commissioned on this scope of study. This research employs interviews and questionnaires to collect primary data from the IDP respondents in camps within Mogadishu in order to establish how much the diaspora have contributed to the economic resilience of the displaced families.
