Gulf Migration: Impact on Kerala

Kerala's Gulf Connection, 1998-2011: Economic and Social Impact of Migration by K C Zachariah and S Irudaya Rajan (New Delhi: Orient Blackswan) 2012; pp xvii + 261, Rs 695 (HB).

Scholars working on international migration and the Indian diaspora invariably find reliable quantitative data hard to come by. They largely depend upon guesstimates, impressionistic observations, anecdotal narratives, and at best small-scale ethnographic studies. Obviously, they are seldom confident in arriving at empirical generalisations or in offering useful policy inputs. In Kerala’s Gulf Connection, 1998-2011, Zachariah and Irudaya Rajan address this deficiency, while unravelling various dimensions of Kerala’s “Gulf connection” during the last decade and a half.
