An article from Cambodia Development Review, volume 15, July-September 2011: 'Reconsidering the Impact of Migration on Older Age Parents: Evidence from Two Battambang Communes', 2011

The overarching questions addressed in this research are: How does migration of adult children affect the well-being of rural older age parents who remain behind, and how does this migration impact intergenerational solidarity? More specifically, the study seeks to examine whether the migration of adult children leads to the desertion and neglect of older parents, whether types of intergenerational exchanges differ depending upon the location of children, whether migrants and their parents maintain social contact and whether the net balance of material exchanges over the duration of the separation favour parents or children.
