Summary/Abstract: Published in July, 2012 by the Prishtina-Office of UNDP // UNDP’s Kosovo Remittance Study (KRS) 2010 provided an initial insight on the flow, use, and effects of remittances in Kosovo, especially on expenditure patterns, reservation wages, and access to education and healthcare. The survey was repeated during the peak period of Diaspora visits to Kosovo, in July-August 2011, in order to conduct a more in-depth analysis of remittances’ impact on the welfare of recipients as well as identify their savings and investment potential. The survey interviewed 8,000 households residing in Kosovo and 656 of their members and relatives (and their households) living abroad.
