Study on Outward Migration


With the support of the Centre for Multi-disciplinary Development Research, Dharwad, Bhasha Centre undertook a research study on ‘Migration, Its Impact and Modernity’ in Gujarat. Under the research study, in-depth discussions and personal interviews were conducted with migrants on the issues of reasons, patterns and impact of migration. The field interviews covered tribal communities in Sabarkantha, Banaskatha, Chhotadudepur, Dahod, Tapi and Narmada districts and coastal communities in Valsad district. The research study undertaken by CMDR with the support of ICSSR, Delhi, is part of a larger project to assess the extent of distress migration and determining the relation between migration and modernity in Uttarakhand, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Gujarat. As part of the study, Bhasha also collected Research Studies and Publications on migration in Gujarat. These are available at the Library of CMDR.
