Abstract: This paper explores the gender differences of remittance sending behaviour of internal migrants in Vietnam. This study emerges from the context of rapid economic growth, feminisation of migration and the real potential of remittances for poverty alleviation.

This study uses a sequential mixed methods approach using both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Each research question is addressed using a different sequence of quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
