Seminar 1: Sending Money Back Home: Migration from the Global South

Seminar 2: Financial Technology and Economic Informality: Perspectives from Africa

Dr. Daivi Rodima-Taylor (Director of the Diaspora Studies Initiative at the Boston University African Studies Center) will explore the dilemmas of migration from the countries of the Global South, with a focus on the contributions of migrants to their homelands. Dr. Rodima-Taylor will discuss the earnings migrants send home to support their families (migrant remittances) that constitute an important lifeline particularly in conflict situations, and the debates and dilemmas central to remittance transfers and migration. The seminar will explore informal remittance transfers, with the associated problems of illegality and money laundering. Dr. Rodima-Taylor will also discuss the challenges and opportunities entailed in the intersection of financial technology (FinTech) platforms with informal savings groups and social networks of mutuality.
