De-simplifying child labor in Vietnam: The effects of different forms of child labor on educational attainment

Abstract:

The “feminization of migration” has diverse causes and consequences for both the source and destination countries. Recently, not only have women assumed a greater share of the immigration stock in OECD countries, but the rate of skilled female migration has surpassed that of males (Docquier and Rapoport, 2009). This phenomenon carries important implications for the developing source countries because: 1) women’s human capital stock is already relatively lower than that of men, 2) women tend to send more remittances and for a longer period of time, and 3) women have an important role in investing in children’s education (Docquier, Lowell and Marfouk, 2007). Despite the increase in volume and impact of skilled women international migration, however, the gender dimension of the brain drain has been insufficiently addressed. In my research, I use multivariate regression analysis to explore the relationships between various forms of gender inequality, mainly in educational attainment and labor market opportunities, and the rate of skilled female emigration. I also examine how GDP per capita of the source country mediates these relationships. Through the study, I hope to shed some light on the dynamics between gender inequalities and the opportunities and rationale women hold in the context of international migration.
