Abstract

The literatures that exist shows that most researchers only focus on the pre-departure and placement of the migrant workers in their destination countries. There is still very limited literature about the potential of return migrant workers as a development capital. In fact, if managed properly, returnees can have positive impacts not only in terms of the economy through remittances they send to their hometown, but also social impact on the surrounding community. This research purposes are;1) explore the socio-cultural values brought back by return migrant workers to the hometown and how these values affect the surrounding community 2) identify the benefits of social remittances brought by return migrant workers and how social remittances can improve the quality of life of returnees, families and surrounding communities, 3) identify the efforts have been done by stakeholders on organizing returnees as well as identify relevant policies exist, 4) identify and absorb return migrant workers aspiration about how they see themselves as development agent. The research approach used is a qualitative approach with case study methods. Collecting data methods are interview, observations and documentation.
