The Role of Education in Mobile Livelihoods: Social and Geographical Routes of Young Nepalese Migrants in India
Valentin, Karen
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v43 n4 p429-442 Dec 2012
This article focuses on the relationship between migration and education as aspects of wider livelihood strategies among Nepalese migrants in India. It argues that physical and social mobility are inextricably linked and looks at education (both formal and informal) as a driving force in migration. Combining a broad notion of education with a transnational approach to migration, the article sheds light on the multiple and changing meanings ascribed to education in processes of physical mobility.
