Livelihood Diversity: Causes of Rural-Urban Migration; Why Rwanda's poverty classification does not explain migratin flows
MetadataShow full item record
The central question of this research is: How are rural-based households actively engaged into flows of rural-urban migration and how are these linkages related to their livelihoods? To answer this question rural livelihoods, causes and flows of migration are examined. Rural-urban migration is seen as an integral part of rural-urban linkages. Different households have their own reasons to participate in rural-urban migration resulting in migration strategies. Migration is not related to the poverty status of a household but to their livelihood strategy.
