RETURN VISITS AMONG FILIPINO MIGRANTS IN DUNEDIN, NEW ZEALAND
Abstract:he purpose of this article is to present top-line data from a recent study investigating travel to the Philippines by Filipino migrants living in Dunedin, New Zealand. The study was conducted to provide an initial assessment of migrant mobilities among a small subpopulation of Filipino migrants. Financial and logistical constraints prevented broad coverage of Filipino migrants across New Zealand, although such research is currently in the planning stages. The study itself is part of a larger, multisite research project based at the University of Otago designed to investigate the relationship between migration and temporary mobility.
