Dissertation topic:
The impact of remittances on transition economies.

Disertation abstract:
The remittances are playing an increasingly important role in the countries with transition economies. Besides being a source of financial relief for families of workers who left abroad, they also have several positive impact on remittances-receiving economies: remittances stimulate the usage of banking services, thus promoting the access to banking products for wide population; they serve as alternative micro-financing sources for small private business; remittances also contribute to increase in demand for different goods and services, thus stimulating economic growth.
On the other hand, studies suggest several side effects of the flows of remittances to transition economies: rise of domestic price level due to increase in consumption; shift in consumption towards luxurious goods; adverse effect on the exchange rates; contribution to inequality of wealth distribution; and impact on the labor market: the recipients of remittances have the incentive to withdraw from the labor market or to postpone the search of a job.
The aim of the proposed thesis is to deepen the knowledge of the effects that remittances have on transition economies, which would help to design policies that would allow transition economies to benefit from the monetary flows coming from abroad, while diminishing or controlling for the side effects.
