Keywords:remittances, non-monetary remittances, Egyptians, Egypt
Migrants remit money, goods and commodities, as well as ideas and behaviors that affect sending countries, positively or negatively. It is not enough to study and track the flow of monetary remittances, which we admit its importance, but they also should give more attention to the study of the impact of socio-cultural remittances which may play an important role, negative or positive, in reshaping societies. This study aims at exploring both types of remittances, monetary and non-monetary remittances, and assesses their impact on Egypt.
