Informal Remittance Systems in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Countries: Senegal Country Study Barbara Jettinger


This case study begins by providing a brief introduction to Senegal and its recent history, before describing the trajectories of Senegalese migrants and the changing context of their migration. Second, the report provides details about the amount of and the relationship between formal and informal remittances. This section ends with a brief examination of the changing use of remittances, and the responses of both various policy actors and the providers of remittances. The remainder of the case study then explores several informal remittance systems spanning mainly four EU countries and Senegal. The conclusion summarizes and highlights the main findings from the case study.
