Every year thousands of parents in Southeast Asia join the outflow of labor migrants, often motivated by a desire to give their children a better future. Compared to the extensive literature on labor migration, relatively little research has investigated the impact of parental absence on children left behind. In this presentation I first introduce the Child Health and Migrant Parent in South East Asia (CHAMPSEA) project, which has collected two waves of data on left-behind children and their households in Indonesia and the Philippines.
